Access to Health Care in a Black Urban Elderly Population.
Petchers, Marcia K.; Milligan, Sharon E.
Gerontologist, v28 n2 p213-17 Apr 1988
Conducted community survey (N=396) which revealed that adequate financial coverage for health care for low-income urban Black elderly has been prevented by out-of-pocket medical expenses. Found that, although health care facilities were regularly available, the lack of regular physicians' services at the health care location was a major cause of dissatisfaction. (Author/ABL)
