SD Legislative Panel Approves Rural Health Plan

July 11, 2012, 5:25 AM

SD Legislative Panel Approves Rural Health Plan
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota legislative committee has approved the state Health Department's plan for a revamped program that will help recruit health care professionals to rural communities.

The program was approved by the Legislature earlier this year. The Legislature's Rules Review Committee has now endorsed the state Health Department's rules for operating the program.

Nurses, pharmacists and others get an incentive payment of $10,000 if they agree to practice for at least three years in a rural hospital, nursing home or other facility taking part in the program.

In communities with populations of less than 2,500, the state will pay 75 percent of the incentive while the facility pays the other 25 percent. In communities with populations ranging from 2,500 to 10,000, the state and the facility will each pay half.
