New York, NY (PRWEB) February 29, 2016
MultiPlan, Inc., the industry’s most comprehensive provider of healthcare cost management solutions, is accepting applications for its 2016 Rural Health Outreach Grant. The grant provides financial resources to hospitals serving rural areas to help them introduce or expand services, education, screenings and other programs aimed at improving the health of people in their communities. This year, MultiPlan will award four grants of $7,500 each.
The Rural Health Outreach Grant is available to hospitals participating in one or more of MultiPlan’s healthcare provider networks including PHCS, MultiPlan, Beech Street, HealthEOS, and Texas True Choice, as well as the IHP, AMN, HMN and RAN networks. An application for the grant is posted in the Providers section of MultiPlan’s website at http://www.multiplan.com. Completed applications must be received by April 22, 2016. Grant recipients will be announced in May.
Hospitals applying for the grant are encouraged to “think outside the box” in terms of finding new ways to serve the healthcare needs of people in their communities. Dr. Anthony Sposato, Corporate Medical Director for MultiPlan said, “The world in which we operate is rapidly changing when it comes to the resources we have to communicate with and deliver services to healthcare recipients. We encourage grant applicants to consider these in their program development.”
To date, MultiPlan has awarded nearly $500,000 through the Rural Health Outreach Grant. The grants have helped fund a wide variety of health services supporting the healthcare needs of patients from all age categories — from pediatric trauma programs to treating the behavioral health needs of the elderly. Information about previous grant recipients is available on the MultiPlan website. For questions about the grant, contact MultiPlan at rural(at)multiplan.com.
