Welcome to NARHC


Welcome to NARHC, a non-profit association of Rural Health Clinics.  NARHC promotes, expands and protects the RHC Program.  This in turn addresses inequities in health care. NARHC is dedicated to improving the delivery of quality, cost-effective health care in rural underserved areas. We work diligently with Congress, federal agencies and rural health allies. Bookmark our website for answers to all your Rural Health Clinic questions!

NARHC strives to be your RHC voice before Congress, the Department of HHS & CMS when you join us as a member. Please fill out a membership application now and thereby make our voice stronger for RHCs.

We provide you with the most up-to-date information on issues affecting RHCs through our list serves.  Also stay informed is by attending one of our biannual conferences.  We hold the Spring Institute in San Antonio, in March.  The Fall Institute convenes in October.  The location switches from the East one year to the West the next.


  • Agendas are never planned very far in advance, so we can bring you the latest, breaking news.
  • Most NARHC conferences fill early, so register early!
  • Hospital CEOs, CFOs, physicians, PAs, NPs, RNs, administrators, billers, & coders, comprise most of the attendees.
  • Both newcomers and RHC veterans alike consequently value the information provided.


Due to a perceived need, we created an RHC online training, the Certified Rural Health Clinic Professional (CRHCP).  This training gives RHC Directors, Clinic Administrators and other leaders a comprehensive, basic overview of RHC rules and regulations, so needed to optimally manage an RHC.  It opened Spring 2018 to rave reviews!  Find out everything you need to know HERE.

Please join us at one of our educational conferences, training, webinars, list serve, or as a member.  We’d like to be your voice in Washington D.C.!
