North Dakota is a rural state and studies have indicated that in some instances it can be hard to find certain types of health care providers, regardless of what insurance a person might have.

Comments will be used as part of a process that will measure and track access to health care providers and services.

There are five areas where feedback is needed:

  • Primary care services (provided by a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, federally-qualified health center, clinic, or dental provider)
  • Physician specialty services (cardiology, urology, and radiology)
  • Behavioral health services (mental health and substance abuse services)
  • Pre and post-natal childbirth services (pregnancy, childbirth, and post-delivery care)
  • Home health services (transition services from a hospital to a home setting)
