This project aims to identify and evaluate disparities in health care delivery experiences among racial and ethnic groups within the Medicare population and within the high-need, high-cost (HNHC) populations. The project will investigate the association between Medicare coverage and patient-reported health care experiences, and how they differ across racial/ethnic groups and within the high-cost, high-need population. The project also will assess recent national trends in patient out-of-pocket costs to illuminate the relationship between Medicare coverage and racial/ethnic disparities in health care-related financial risk. The analyses will use data from the Medicare Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) from 2009 to 2018.
