The Center for Medicare Advocacy recently released an Issue Brief, Examining Health Care Disparities: An Analysis of Home Health Care Received by Connecticut’s Dually Eligible Population. With support from the Connecticut Health Foundation and assistance from a University of Connecticut professor, the Center reviewed and analyzed Medicaid paid home health services for dually eligible people in Connecticut to identify disparities in the receipt of care within the dually eligible population. The Issue Brief discusses our analysis, findings, and recommendations for possible interventions that might lead to improved access to necessary health care. The analysis considered data regarding race, ethnicity, diagnosis, and geographic location.
