Your Senator

Rural Healthcare Realities

By Landon Hise

Rural health care is in crisis. In small towns and farming communities across our state and nation, the options for primary health care are dwindling. Patients are driving farther than ever for the care they need. Like much of the country, Oklahoma is facing a shortage of primary health care providers that will only worsen as the population ages.

Rural Healthcare Realities

By Landon Hise
 
Like state legislators, rural Oklahoma hospitals are dealing with a budget problem. There’s a solution to the problem, but Oklahoma’s legislators have to accept it. The healthcare budget problem is caused by continued cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.
