Background and purpose: Reliable information about utilization of medical services is key for making appropriate decisions of all healthcare systems. Nonetheless, most policy decisions and planning in the rural areas of developing countries are made with the lack of such crucial information. In this article we attempt to reveal the pattern of curative care utilization of rural population in Amol, a county in Northern Province of Mazandaran. 
Methods: In this study 355 patients living in rural area who in the last three month utilized curative care from different providers were interviewed in their doorsteps. All interviewees were heads of family or people age above 15. SPSS software was used for analyzing the data. 
Results: About a quarter of patients (24.5%) have referred to their local family physicians. It is noticeable that the proportion of people who referred to GP out of family physicians scheme exceeds the proportion of patients referred to GPs who are working as family physicians in the FMRI scheme. Among the studied variables, only basic insurance, severity of disease, and type of care utilized had significant association with referred or not referred of individuals to their own family physicians.
Conclusion:Family medicine and rural insurance in Iran has increased the overall service utilization of population in rural areas but not in the scale that the government has spent its limited healthcare resources. This raises the concern of inappropriate resource allocation for inappropriate people and inappropriate services.
