In this new video, KFF Senior Fellow Karen Pollitz explains why surprise bills have been such a major problem for patients, the new federal ban on the practice, and how patients can get help if they received a surprise bill.
KFF is collecting and analyzing data on COVID-19 vaccinations by race/ethnicity to gain increased insight who is receiving the vaccine and whether some groups are facing disparities in vaccination.
These COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented by vaccination during the time that vaccines have been widely available to all U.S. adults, our analysis shows. The overwhelming majority of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths continue to be preventable.
This brief reviews how race is incorporated into medical care and training and discusses implications for health and health care disparities and efforts to advance health equity.
