Health enterprise zones to target disparities in MD
Frustrated by Maryland's high rate of health disparities, state leaders are proposing a new attack—one more commonly associated with economic development. Gov. Martin O'Malley's 2012-2013 budget will include funding to create Health Enterprise Zones, where doctors and community groups in areas with large health disparities, such as Baltimore, could add medical and support services for minorities. Tax credits and other financial incentives would be available to spur interest.
