Welcome to the California State Rural Health Association!

Thank you for visiting our new website.  It just came up on May 8th.  It’s is not fully populated, so we hope you will come back often as we add valuable information.  

Don’t take my health care

If you don’t like what is going on with health care, you need to become involved with CSRHA and other organizations that support nonpartisan grassroots manner make sure that rural’s voice is heard. There has never been a more important time for health care and rural health care.  In the early 1970’s health advocates pushed for healthcare as a “right” not a “privilege”.  Fifty years later, we are seeing what is perhaps the biggest reduction in access to health care since the 70’s.

While the bill was passed before the CBO issued a report on it’s impact, many estimate that 20 million American’s could lose their health care.  And many experts believe that rural will be seriously impacted.  Check out The Kaiser Family Foundations website to get great information on ACA repeal.  http://kff.org/health-reform/

We can’t afford to leave our voice to someone else.  We urge you to let your elected officials know how you feel about the repeal of “ObamaCare”.    If you are not a member of CSRHA, we urge you to join.  Your support allows us to do more to Advocate, Collaborate and Educate.
