- ItemTHE EFFECT OF OWN RACE/ETHNICITY DENSITY ON INSURANCE TAKE-UP BY ASIAN AMERICANS(2019) Choi, Yoon Sun; Roby, Dylan H; Health Services Administration; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)Asian Americans are the fastest growing minority population in the U.S. (Lopez et al., 2017). Since the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), Asian Americans have benefitted from insurance coverage increases but continue to experience disparities at the subgroup level (Park et al., 2018). This study investigates the association of own race subgroup density on the take-up of insurance by examining the effect of Asian subgroup concentration that may provide social and knowledge support linkages to available insurance coverage options.
