Income Disparities And Access To Healthcare

Mr. Steven Blumberg, Corporate Vice President of Value Based Care Medicine with Baptist Health South Florida, says there are assumptions about access to health care with varying levels of income and folks who are insured vs. uninsured. “It's easy to build resources around patients who have coverage but because we are a community asset and a nonprofit system; we try to build out ecosystems around delivery of care at all levels of health coverage in the community. It's a uniquely American problem, because we have different kinds of coverage available to folks and depending on the conditions people show up with, we are dependent," he says.
