A-C-A Program Brings More Physicans to Wyoming

While there’s much negative publicity about the Affordable Care Act and insurance, the legislation is being credited with getting more doctors and other health professionals into Wyoming by paying off their student loans. The National Health Service Corps received a major funding boost under the A-C-A which means more loan repayments for health care providers who agree to set up shop in underserved areas. Martin Kramer at the Health Resources and Services Administration says the funding was sent close to 100 physicians, nurses, dentists and other professionals in Wyoming.  Kramer says it’s true that some health care providers move to more populated areas after they complete their service commitment, but most don’t.  He says that two years after their service is completed, 85% of the National Service Corps clinicians continue to serve in underserved communities. Fifty percent of health care professionals receiving loan repayment assistance, work in Community Health Centers. The numbers come from a new report from the U-S Department of Health and Human Services.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
