Effect of race and health insurance on health disparities: results from the National Health Interview Survey 2010.

Abstract

Significant race-related disparities persist in the U.S. regarding access to health services. Initiatives to reduce such disparities have often focused on expanding health insurance coverage for vulnerable populations. Based on our analysis of 2010 data from the National Health Interview Survey, we found that race is a much greater factor than insurance status in accounting for disparities in access to health services. Expanding health insurance through reform initiatives such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act may have relatively little impact on reducing racial and ethnic disparities in the US.
