Missouri has more Rural Health Clinics than any other state. Managing RHCs creates a unique challenge for clinic directors and personnel, as well as hospital staff charged with overseeing operations. Regulations and procedures are unique to RHCs. Understanding billing, credentialing, commingling and attestations are necessary to ensure cost-effective management.

This seminar will provide foundational knowledge, as well as information to avoid common pitfalls and misunderstanding in RHC management.


Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • describe recent regulatory issues and changes affecting RHCs
  • identify billing issues unique to RHCs and discuss ways to address these issues
  • discuss compliance issues for RHCs including chronic pain management, emergency preparedness, annual evaluations and accreditation
