Udall floats two measures to bring more doctors to rural communities

Mark Udall introduced two amendments to the Senate health reform bill designed to boost services in rural communities. “There are not enough doctors who want to practice outside major metro areas. In fact, of the 47 rural counties [in Colorado]—that’s out of 64 counties, total—all but three are designated by the federal government as health professional shortage areas,” he said.
