Preparing for Medicare Part D: An Opportunity for State Offices of Rural Health and State Rural Health Associations


Keeping with their organizational missions to improve and promote the health of rural Americans, state offices of rural health and state rural health associations have an inherent interest in helping beneficiaries access necessary healthcare services, including prescription medications. Implementation of Part D creates an opportunity to help beneficiaries through leadership, by connecting beneficiaries and those who serve them to resources that will help them react appropriately to changes in the program.
