A report from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services examining disparities in care based on race, ethnicity and sex shows that in 2023, clinical care disparities were most common for Native American and African-American enrollees. Native American and African-American enrollees scored below average on measures in diabetes care, while African-Americans additionally scored below average measures in behavioral health, cardiovascular care and care coordination. Results for Asian American, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander enrollees were mixed, while scores for male and female MA enrollees on patient experience and clinical care measures were similar.
