Minorities often comprise our rural and lowest income population and often have the most health risks. Lack of dental care, and risk factors for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and Hepatitis C are realities for most of this population. How can a Medicaid and Medicare patient access services such as dental treatment? Where does a patient go when there is a shortage of Providers in an area, and speciality providers do not accept Medicaid? We cannot really address disparity until we acknowlege adults have health issues that are not covered by Medicaid and Medicare, and that Provider reimbursement truly affects the quality of Minority healthcare.
