   Statistical Brief 367
MEPS component:
   Household Component
Publication date:

Description:
   Among those with a USC provider, quality of care and patient centeredness varies substantially by household income and insurance status. Only 8 percent of individuals in the medium and high income categories report that their USC provider never or sometimes shows respect for their treatment preferences, while 13 percent of those in the poorest income group do. The corresponding percentages for individuals in the near poor and low income groups are 12 percent and 10 percent, respectively.
