Slew of Bills to Address Shortage of Primary Care Physicians in Rural Areas

State lawmakers are trying to address a growing shortage of primary care physicians, especially in rural areas around the state.


But those efforts have not gone smoothly.


Several bills in Springfield attempt to alleviate the effects of the doctor shortage by giving nurse practitioners more autonomy, licensing midwives, allowing dentists to administer vaccinations, and allowing psychologists to prescribe certain mental health medications.


None of those bills have yet passed the Illinois legislature.
