I live in a pretty rural area, most would call it positively outback, but I wouldn't say that health care is any more affordable. However, access to primary care physicians is relatively straightforward, it is the specialists that are not available. My wife and I have to travel to Reno or to Salt Lake City for specialist care so the cost of travel and lodging is added to the cost of medical care. Different problems in different health care markets.
