  2. Physicians whose practices are not located in federally designated Medically Underserved Areas/Populations or Primary Care Health Professional Shortage Areas but are located in Primary Care Analysis Areas of under 20,000 population and at least 50% of visits are patients from federally designated underserved areas and/or MaineCare
