DescriptionIt is well known that those with moderate and high incomes are healthier on average than those with low incomes. For every age group and on most health indicators, the poor are less healthy than the near poor and nonpoor. Many factors influence health, including access to medical care. This policy brief summarizes survey data concerning disparities in health care access and health in the United States, as well as provides an evidence-based solution to improve the health of the poor.
