Race-Conscious Policy Analysis and the Healthcare Reform Debate

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    There is an inherent tension between cost containment and expansion of coverage for the uninsured. African Americans disproportionately benefit from expanded health care options but they also bear a disproportionate burden in attempts to control costs. This recognition justifies a race-conscious analysis of health policy changes that appear race-neutral on their face.
