Working Together For Michigan Consumers To be Healthy

Guest Blog: Health Disparities

In a press release from Health and Human Services (HHS) “In April, we commemorate National Minority Health Month to raise awareness of the health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities, as well as celebrate the opportunities of the Affordable Care Act’s groundbreaking policies to reduce those health disparities.” Due to the lack of access and preventative care, minorities are significantly more prone to catastrophic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and several other life altering health issues.

Just beyond the second anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, there have been great strides made in addressing these healthcare inequalities by opening the channels of access to affordable, quality healthcare services made possible by the ACA.
