Treatment disparities linked to physician practice resources
Health Affairs, April 24, 2008
Primary care physicians treating large minority populations tend to earn less and see more patients, leaving them ill-equipped to address racial and ethnic treatment disparities, according to a study by researchers at the Center for Studying Health System Change. If Medicaid payments were on par with those paid by Medicare, more practices would have the resources to reduce treatment disparities, say the study's authors.
