The issue of narrow provider networks has become more serious as a result of the implementation of the ACA and the uncomfortable balance that needs to be made between reducing healthcare expenditures and providing local access to care. This study aims to develop norms/standards for provider network adequacy for rural populations (which may vary across different rural environments) that will be useful to consumers, providers, and policymakers in the decisions they face with respect to health plan choices, participation, and policies.
