Rural Health Clinics in Nebraska

The Rural Health Clinics Program (RHC Program) was developed in response to the unmet needs of Medicare and Medicaid recipients in underserved areas of rural America. In the RHC Program, the federal government crafted a plan to encourage physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians to practice together in rural areas. Today, rural health clinics are an integral part of the health care delivery systems, with over 3000 federally certified rural health clinics providing primary care services for over 7 million people in 47 states.  NeRHA is a vital link between health clinics and federal legislators and regulators as it brings the “real world” experience of rural health clinic practice to policy making and policy makers: The Nebraska Rural Health Association is the only Nebraska organization dedicated exclusively to improving the delivery of quality, cost-effective health care in rural under served areas through the Rural Health Clinics (RHC) Program. NeRHA works with Congress, federal agencies, and rural health allies to promote, expand, and protect the RHC Program. Through the association, RHC members become actively engaged in the legislative and regulatory process.


is one the fastest-growing events for rural health clinics in the state for a reason. The conference is one of a kind in that it is dedicated strictly to Rural Health Clinics (RHC). Rural health clinic staff find great value in attending this conference, from clinic managers, to physicians, to billers and coders as we offer a variety of topics. Whether you are looking to expand your RHC knowledge or keep up to date on the ever changing coding and billing rules and regulations happening in the RHC world, this conference is for you.

Group Purchasing Program Design for Rural Health Clinics


NeRHA has partnered with Private Practice Associates to provide services to RHC members free with their membership. PPA is the region’s premier practice management and group purchasing organization. We are committed to helping physicians enhance their practices, operate more efficiently, and reduce costs and to help make practices more successful. The balancing act that today’s private practices and clinics face: balancing patient care between continued rising costs, regulations and management concerns is getting harder and harder to achieve.

You need someone on your side and we help by bringing you services, products and connectivity to better manage the business of healthcare. Our goal is to bring you all of the services, products and resources in one place.
