Health Care Disparities
One of our initiatives is implementing programs to reduce the impact of health care disparities and
improve the health and well being of the lives we touch. We do this through targeted health fairs
and programs. In order to achieve these goals we need your assistance in the collection of this
data. You may be asked questions related to your race, ethnicity and languages spoken, by health
representatives, your doctor and office staff. The ability to obtain race, ethnicity and language
data is the first step towards reducing disparities in health care. Please know that your willingness
to provide this information is voluntary. The information will remain confidential and will not be
used to determine coverage, copays, claims payment, or to discriminate in any way. We appreciate
your support in improving quality of life and eliminating health care disparities.
