Doctor Bottleneck Meets Medicaid Surge
(Bloomberg) — Of the five doctors in the New Albany Medical Group in rural northern Mississippi, only one can accept new patients. He specializes in geriatrics.
“Frankly, as people die off, he replaces them,” said Jason Dees, one of the physicians in the group in the Union County seat of New Albany, where William Faulkner was born. “We’re all pretty booked, and there’s still more demand.”
