hey everyone! i'm new here and i'm a first year medical student. i have a question. i have been told that family physicians are compensated more in rural areas than in suburban areas. is this true? and if so, why is this the case? it seems like rural areas would have more patients with medicaid as opposed to private insurance. i know that talking money is taboo in some places but i can't get a straight answer from anyone that i know. i'm just curious, i don't know much about the business side of running a practice or anything. any thoughts would be appeciated.
