Sherman County Medical Clinic Gets Exemption

Sherman County Medical Clinic announced its nurse practitioner has gotten an exemption allowing him to continue seeing Medicare patients.  The clinic had been concerned Mark Corey would not receive the exemption to serve a caseload of nearly 200 Medicare patients at the rural health clinic in Moro, which would have forced it to reduce services.  Sherman County Health District Administrator Caitlin Blagg said Senator Ron Wyden’s office assisted with getting the exemption approved.  She says the Nurse Practitioner is essential to provide quality health care in Sherman County.  Wyden said he was gratified to work with Medicare officials to reach a just resolution.
