Reactions & Comments:

 

Approximately 56 percent of spending on basic health and medical services is done locally.  About 44 percent or respondents get less than 60 percent of their basic health care within Pope county, but 46% get 81-100 percent of their health care within Pope county.

 

Working outside the county is associated with less spending on healthcare within the county.  However, this difference is not as great as for some of the other services studied in this report.

 

Communities more distant from Starbuck/Glenwood get healthcare from other places.  Within Starbuck and Glenwood only about 55 percent or so get their healthcare exclusively from within the county.

 

No apparent relationship between spending and income.

 

Good service, pricing, and availability of appointments appear to be important for people spending more within the county on healthcare.

 

Advertising or marketing of services does not appear to influence people to spend more within the county.

 

 

Written Comments:

 

*very satisfied

*Medical-great job-always bringing in more Drs. Nice looking building addition! Great Drs and Nurses.

*confidence in provider

*Insurance company says where and when we can go

*The glenwood clinic does not offer a lot of services with out going to the hospital so then our co pay will not cover the service. We must meet the deductable.

*In house Monitors for Strokes, Imaging, MRI's etc.

*the good doctors are booked and the other doctors are scary. The emergency room makes me nervous, might get one of the scary doctors.

*A friendly environment- confidentiality        

*insurance tells where to go for best coverage

*Pope county does not meet expectation of Health Care
