March 13, 2020
Last week, U.S. Senators Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) introduced legislation to extend the Frontier Community Health Integration Project (FCHIP) until August 2024, a program in ten facilities across Montana, Nevada and North Dakota that develops and tests health care delivery and reimbursement models for Critical Access Hospitals in hyper-rural counties. The project began in August 2016, and expired in July 2019.
Dahl Memorial Healthcare Association in Ekalaka, McCone County Health Center in Circle and Roosevelt Medical Center in Culbertson are all FCHIP participants.
