Rural Health

Our Position

Nearly 97% of America’s land is considered rural. However, only 20% of the total U.S. population — approximately 60 million Americans — live in rural areas. Americans in rural areas face greater health challenges than their contemporaries living in urban and suburban areas.

Health insurance providers stand ready to work with policymakers at the state and federal levels to implement solutions that will increase the availability of rural providers, allow clinicians in rural areas to practice at the top of their licenses, and create environments where virtual care can flourish.
