New Bill Passed to Expand Rural Health Care

Sep 30, 2022
Health Care

For too many people in rural Eastern Washington, getting to and from the doctor’s office is no easy task that can turn into an all-day affair full of driving. Thankfully, mobile health centers are dramatically changing the way providers are able to deliver care to their patients by bringing services directly to them – especially in some of the most hard to reach and underserved areas.

Mobile health clinics have changed the entire health care landscape in our communities, and they are helping people live more healthy and happy lives. To build on the success of these clinics, I was proud to help the MOBILE Health Care Access Act pass through the House of Representatives this week. 

This bipartisan legislation will allow Community Health Centers to use their New Access Point grant funding to purchase mobile units and expand their reach to rural communities across the country. 

I’m confident this legislation will make health care more accessible for those who live in our most rural communities, and I look forward to seeing it make its way to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
