We need to stop the separate and unequal system of funding and access to healthcare for our low-income, underserved communities, says Elaine Batchlor, MD, MPH, CEO of MLK Community Healthcare @yourMLKCH. Dr. Batchlor talks with @AmerPhysGrps President and CEO @DonCrane about why simply adding more people to #Medicaid without correcting the payment disparity between #Medicare and Medicaid won’t give people adequate access to quality medical care. Listen to this frank and straightforward discussion about how the provider reimbursement system is a good example of structural racism and why we must change it to achieve #healthequity. #SDOH
