Day 55/67: Five Month GED, 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%).”
