For Selected Services, Blacks And Hispanics More Likely To Receive Low-Value Care Than Whites. Academic Article uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • US minority populations receive fewer effective health services than whites. Using Medicare administrative data for 2006-11, we found no consistent, corresponding protection against the receipt of ineffective health services. Compared with whites, blacks and Hispanics were often more likely to receive the low-value services studied.
