  1. Fulltext. Is access to home health care a problem in rural areas ?

    Article - En anglais


    In 1987, urban Medicare beneficiaries were 13.7% more likely than their rural counterparts to use Medicare home health care services.

    Regression analysis shows that rural use rates, particularly those in sparsely populated areas, fall short of those in urban areas, other things being equal.

    Rural areas have lower Medicare ceilings, proportionately fewer visiting nurse associations, and lower availability of auxiliaire services.
