Find Shortage Areas: HPSAs Eligible for the Medicare Physician Bonus Payment

The HPSAs Eligible for the Medicare Physician Bonus Payment advisor tools allows the user (physician) to determine if an address is eligible for bonus payments. Medicare makes bonus payments to physicians who provide medical care services in geographic areas that are HRSA-designated as primary medical care Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) and to psychiatrists who provide services in HRSA-designated mental health HPSAs.

The search results indicate if the address is in a Primary Care HPSA or Mental Health HPSA, along with state, county name, Census Tract, zip code, and a map identifying the address.
