About this Annual Assessment

Psychiatrist and Dentist shortages continue to be a problem in Montana, particularly in rural areas and among low-income populations. In accordance with the federal designation guidelines, the Montana Primary Care Office continues to track and assess primary care needs and the physician workforce across the state. HPSAs may be designated as having a shortage in primary medical care, dental or mental health providers. They may be geographic areas, specific population groups, or public facilities.  Read more about HPSAs in Montana.

This year, the Montana Primary Care Office has contracted with WIM Tracking to complete the HPSA assessments for the dental and behavioral health segment.
