Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA)
HPSAs are defined service areas that demonstrate a critical shortage of primary care physicians, dentists, or mental health providers. An HPSA can be a distinct geographic area such as a parish or grouping of census tracts, a specific population group within a defined geographic area (such as a population under 200% poverty), or a specific public or non-profit facility such a state hospital. You can learn more about HPSAs by visiting the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) Web site, or clicking here.To see whether your parish is considered an HPSA, view this map.
