Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) is the more commonly used federal shortage area designation (the other designation being MUA/MUP). An area can be designated as having a shortage of: -primary care physicians (family and general practitioners, pediatricians, obstetricians/gynecologists, and general internists in medical or osteopathic practice), primary dental care, or mental health care. An area must meet three criteria to be designated as a HPSA. It must: -Be a rational service area for the delivery of care. Because the federal criteria for HPSA designation depends on census data, rational service areas are established using census delineation’s (census tracts, census civil divisions [CCDs], or counties); -Be below a specific ratio of population to providers; and -Lack access to health care in surrounding areas because of distance, over use, or access barriers
