  •  NM isn't the only place with higher rural rates (2+ / 0-)

    CA also has much higher rates in the rural areas of the state than the big cities.  There are 19 regions and the ones with the least number of people are much higher than the big cities.

    This is new for both Blue Cross and Blue Shield because in the rural areas that rates used to be lower than the big cities.

    Also doctors and other care givers have been paid less in the rural areas.  The doctors have complained about this for years because even office space isn't that much different in cost from many of the cities.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
