Abstract:
KEY FINDINGS: In 2013, physician participation in accountable care organizations (ACOs) was inversely related to the percentage of the local population that was black, living in poverty, uninsured, or disabled or that had less than a high school education. This risks exacerbating disparities in the quality of care received by these vulnerable populations.
