Health Disparities in the Medical Population Fact Sheets
Health Disparities in the Medi-Cal Population fact sheets, created by the Department of Health Care Services, explore potential inequalities in various health indicators among Californians. The Department elected to use the 39 health indicators presented in the California Health and Human Services Agency's Let's Get Healthy California Task Force Final Report, as a starting point for the fact sheets. Health Disparities in the Medi-Cal Population provides a snapshot of the health of Medi-Cal members from various backgrounds, compared to the state population, so that health organizations, government officials, policymakers, and advocates can better understand possible disparities. The initial suite of fact sheets includes 24 of the 39 indicators from the Let's Get Healthy California Task Force Final Report.
