Rural Access to Health Care

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
Rural Access to Health Care

If you get sick, you go to the doctor, right? If you can't afford it or don't have insurance, you might go to a low-income clinic or a doctor who accepts your Medicaid. But what if you live in a rural area and the nearest doctor who specializes in your problem is a hundred miles or more away? What if you can afford to make the trip for your surgery, but not the follow-up care you'll subsequently need? This Wednesday we'll be talking about access to health care in rural areas, and learn how some professionals are trying to increase the availability of care for people living outside of urban centers.
