The Affordable Care Act Medicaid Expansion, Social Disadvantage, and the Practice Location Choices of New General Internists

Description
Examines levels of social disadvantage in states that lost general internal medicine physicians (internists) and states that gained internists after Medicaid expansion. Analyzes 32,102 internists who established their first practice between 2009 and 2019 and their location of choice. Outlines characteristics of internist location choices by population demographics such as age, race and ethnicity, education levels, income levels, social disadvantage level, medical school availability, and rurality.
