Rural areas suffer from ambulance shortage

CBS News Saturday Morning

September 25, 2021


Another compelling news story about the rural ambulance service challenges.

While this CBS Saturday Morning news story, which aired September 25th, highlights the report from the Rural Health Policy Institute, similar challenges exist for many ambulance providers in urban and suburban communities as well.

  • Crisis level staffing shortages
  • Inadequate reimbursement
  • Lack of designation as an ‘Essential Service’

In the news story, Alan Morgan, the director of the National Rural Health Association, states that the failing rural ambulance system may be contributing to the falling life expectancy in rural communities.
