Even with Health Insurance, Working-Age Americans with Disabilities May Not Always Get the Healthcare They Need
Researchers at the project on Health and Health Care Disparities Among Individuals with Disabilities wanted to find out if community-dwelling, working-age adults with disabilities were more likely to skip needed care than those without disabilities, even if they had insurance. The researchers also wanted to see if people with certain types of disabilities or health issues were more likely to skip needed care than people with other types of disabilities, and what the reasons were for delaying or skipping care.
