Rural CO Could Benefit from Health Care Reform


DENVER – In Colorado, 680,000 small-town residents know how hard it can be to see a doctor, and Congress is thinking about that matter, too. As the House and Senate try to work out a health care reform compromise, advocates for rural communities say parts of the legislation that would benefit small towns are likely to be approved. For instance, both bills include plans to encourage more physicians to leave the big city for the countryside. With only ten percent of doctors practicing in small towns, Virginia Wolking, organizer with the Center for Rural Affairs, says it would be an important step to remedy that shortage.
