A new study in the Journal of Adolescent Health investigates the quality of care received by disabled youth in healthcare. The study examines several factors that influence quality of care. Between 2014 and 2018, disabled patients were more likely to visit the emergency room, put off getting care because of financial concerns, and have a medical need that went entirely unmet. The National Health Interview Survey, which this study uses, has monitored Americans’ health since 1957.
