Racial and ethnic minorities tend to receive poorer quality of care compared with non-minorities, even when access-related factors, such as insurance status and income, are controlled. The sources of racial and ethnic health care disparities include differences in geography, lack of access to adequate health coverage, communication difficulties between patient and provider, cultural barriers, provider stereotyping, and lack of access to providers. In addition, disparities in the healthcare system contribute to the overall disparities in health status that affect racial and ethnic minorities.
