FILE - Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper speaks at a news conference at the Capitol in Denver in this Wednesday, May 22, 2013 file photo. Hickenlooper Saturday afternoon May 17, 2014 will sign Colorado's "Right To Try" bill, which was passed unanimously in the state Legislature. The "Right To Try" law allows terminally ill patients to obtain experimental drugs without getting federal approval. The bill doesn't require drug companies to provide any drug outside federal parameters, and there's no indication pharmaceutical companies will do so. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File)

In this April 25, 2014 photo, a faint marking for what used to be a designated ambulance parking spot sits on the pavement outside the now closed emergency room of Flint River Community Hospital, in Montezuma, Ga. In a major problem for a hospital, 63 percent of residents in the county had no insurance or relied on government-provided insurance for the poor, which health care providers say pays less than private plans. Alarmed by hospital closures, health officials in Georgia are changing rules to let stressed rural hospitals become expanded emergency rooms that can also handle routine childbirths or outpatient surgery.

In this April 25, 2014 photo, a pedestrian crosses South Dooly Street in the main business section of Montezuma, Ga. Hospitals are under financial pressure everywhere, but the problems are compounded in rural America. There are fewer patients than in cities and, logically, fewer customers to pay for a hospital’s costs. According to a 2010 U.S. Census report, the population of Montezuma has decreased by 13.5 percent since 2000. (AP Photo/David Goldman)

In this April 25, 2014 photo, residents stop and talk during a weekday lunch hour along the town's main business street in Montezuma, Ga. As rural hospitals struggle financially, the situation is worse in states like Georgia that are not allowing the poorest of the uninsured to enroll in Medicaid. Republican Gov. Nathan Deal says the long-run costs are too expensive. But putting more people on insurance would mean that hospitals like Flint River treat fewer people without an ability to pay at least some of their bills. (AP Photo/David Goldman)

In this April 25, 2014 photo, the emergency room of Flint River Community Hospital sits closed in Montezuma, Ga. Analysts say that rural hospitals are struggling nationally because they typically serve small populations of customers more likely to be older, uninsured or enrolled in government health care programs that do not fully pay their bills. Alarmed by hospital closures, health officials in Georgia are changing rules to let stressed rural hospitals become expanded emergency rooms that can also handle routine childbirths or outpatient surgery.
