The Health KICC program (Better Health for Kids with Chronic Conditions) comes to the rescue of children from the lower strata of the population who have been diagnosed with chronic health conditions. Medical appointments, procedures, treatment and medicines are made available to such children at subsidized rates in a bid to help them.

The SoDaCAHP (South Dakota Critical Access Hospital Program) helps small hospitals in rural areas to adapt to the rapidly changing health care environments. The CAH (Critical Access Hospital) is a health care plan under this program which aims to create “an organized system of care in rural areas”. Each hospital set up under the CAH meets the Medicare guidelines regarding the number of beds and the duration of inpatient stays.

The main aim of the various health care drives and programs undertaken in the state of South Dakota is to provide quality health care at affordable prices to all sections of its denizens.

J-1 Visa Waiver Program was started with the aim of helping rural communities recruit medical graduates from foreign countries. A physician who gets a J-1 visa becomes eligible for pursuing graduate medical education in the US, though he/she is required to work for a minimum of 40 hours every week and see patients (either outpatients or inpatients).
