38 Things to consider… Rural areas tend to have fewer options for employer-based health insurance Health insurance companies tend to levy high premiums, deductibles, exclusions on farmers and small businesses Rural health care providers tend to be small businesses themselves. They may be paying high costs for health insurance and/or sharing the high cost with employees

39 Things to consider… Significant program changes are happening both in Medicaid in MO and in Medicare Part D (prescription drug program) nationally –Rural populations tend to be older and sicker than urban counter parts –Health care providers are spending time and resources helping individuals find ways to pay –Pharmacies in rural areas are more often independently owned than in urban areas – Medicaid and Medicare Part D have been challenging for all pharmacies

40 Things to consider… Rural providers are currently being called on to provide more free / un-reimbursed /discounted care Rural providers may depend heavily on Medicare and Medicaid Rural providers may have smaller total profit margins so they may have less ability to absorb significant financial losses
