Abstract

Perceived provider discrimination contributes to health disparities in African Americans, Hispanics and Asians. Perceived provider discrimination has a direct effect on self-reported health status. Additionally, because minorities perceive more provider discrimination, they are more likely to delay health seeking. In turn, this delay is associated with poor health. This enriches our understanding of how racial/ethnic health disparities are created and sustained and provides a concrete mechanism on how to reduce health disparities.
