Rural Implications of the Primary Care Incentive Payment Program

Fred Ullrich, A. Clinton MacKinney, and Keith Mueller, 2013.

This brief reports on eligibility among rural primary care providers for Primary Care Incentive Payments. The study found that the number and proportion of providers eligible increased during 2011-2013 and that for most practice types, rural providers were more likely to be eligible than urban counterparts. However, rural family practice physicians were less likely to be eligible for Primary Care Incentive Payments than their urban counterparts, and family practice physicians in isolated rural communities were less likely to be eligible than other rural family practice physicians.
