Economic class and access to health care

There is an excellent report on the impact of socio-economic class on access to health care in the New York Times. It is a rather extensive article, perhaps best to print and save for that period from just before takeoff until you’ve reached 10,000 feet and can fire up that laptop.

One thought on “Economic class and access to health care”

  1. Hi Joe: Enoch Choi recommended your blog to me, and I’ve been reading it faithfully since. I just started a new blog focused on health care issues from the layman’s perspective, and this NY Times article was eye-opening.
    It’s a long one, but so worth reading…it really highlights the complexity. There are care differences up and down the class scale, but there are also cultural differences, patient differences, follow-thru differences…follow-thru on the part of the doctors AND the patients!
    I wrote a post about it too here:
