This project will examine multiple dimensions of access to care, with a focus on rural Medicare beneficiaries, including rural-urban differences in access to care, and within-rural differences in access to care by region, coverage type (traditional fee-for-service vs. supplemental Medigap coverage), and socio-demographic characteristics. Results from this project will be useful in designing targeted interventions and policies to improve access to care and ultimately, health outcomes for rural Medicare beneficiaries.
