This study used 2014 administrative Medicare claims data
to describe the mix of health professionals who care for
rural and urban patients with mood and/or anxiety
disorders. It further describes where these beneficiaries
received care and the one-way distance (miles) and time
(minutes) they travelled to receive it.
