Health Care Inequalities in America: The Need for Continuing Reform

source: Harvard University    2016年4月22日
Over the last two years, we have seen major expansions in health care coverage through both federal and state insurance exchanges, as well as by expanding Medicaid coverage. This Forum examined whether these efforts to extend coverage have improved the health care experiences of low-income Americans and have narrowed the gap in access to high-quality care between themselves and other Americans. The discussion drew on the findings of a new poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health that looked at patients’ perspectives on health care over the last two years, with a focus on the reported experiences of low-income Americans. Through this discussion, panelists identified a future agenda for eliminating inequalities in care.
Presented April 20, 2016, in Collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and NPR.
