Racial and Ethnic Disparities among Enrollees in Medicare Advantage Plans
New England Journal of Medicine

A major study just published in the New England Journal of Medicine examined black-white disparities in blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose control between 2006 and 2011 for patients on Medicare Advantage plans. 

The results show that while these disparities have not improved nationally as a whole between the two time periods, they were eliminated in the Western states, including California.
