In order to protect these small, financially vulnerable rural hospitals, the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program (Flex Program) of 1997 allowed some small hospitals to convert to critical access hospitals (CAH) and changed their Medicare reimbursement mechanism from prospective to cost based (Cameron, Zelman, and Stewart 2001).
After 1997 federal Critical Access Hospital (CAH) legislation contained in the Balanced Budget Act of 199 7 (PL 105-33) the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program replaced this program and broadened support for the development of rural health networks with formal agreements for patient referral and transfer.
