Primary Care Physician Shortage Hits New York

By / July 19, 2013 / / 0 Comments


Getting in to see the family doctor is getting harder and harder. There is a shortage of primary care physicians in the country and it’s about to get worse. As the Affordable Care Act goes into full force in January 2014, there will be upwards of another 30 million Americans with insurance—and competing for the same physicians in your region.

In fact, nearly 1 in 5 Americans already live in an area with a shortage of primary care physicians. Many states are trying to head off a catastrophe with new laws and legislation. The New York Health Department has included an additional $8.5 Million for a program that places primary care physicians in areas that are under-served.
