Notes

Abstract: This research investigated economic health, and medical insurance disparities among children in three ethnic groups in the Dallas, Texas metropolitan area (N = 1511). Minority children were significantly less likely to have medical insurance and medical homes than White children. Furthermore, Hispanic children were more economically at risk and more likely to lack medical insurance than either African-American or White children. Policy efforts to maximize children's access to medical care must focus on income barriers, lack of insurance, and access to medical homes.
