Day 55/67 of GED in Five Months, Linear Inequalities, and Health Care

So, why do you think that it may be important to understand linear inequalities as they relate to Health Care, especially to health care outcomes for Black, Latino, and White Americans?

Today’s reading:

Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) lead to large coverage gains, some groups remain at higher risk of being uninsured, lacking access to care, and experiencing worse health outcomes. For example, as of 2018, Hispanics are two and a half times more likely to be uninsured than Whites (19.0% vs. 7.5%) and individuals with incomes below poverty are four times as likely to lack coverage as those with incomes at 400% of the federal poverty level or above (17.3% vs. 4.3%).”

    1. Excellent! There are also history, grammar and writing sections to each lesson plan, and I’m incorporating science into these last few, to help with guidelines for studying for the GED and HiSET exams.
      I hope you know someone who may find these posts useful.

    1. Yes, it certainly did, and you are absolutely right: the distr. is only one of the more recent and glaring symptoms. Yet, at least it is finally out there, in the open, for all to see, and for all to hopefully begin to deal with, together, cooperatively, for the good of all. (One can hope?)
