Racial disparity continues to be a struggle in America. The main purpose of this project was to determine whether there is a relationship between race and the acquisition of health insurance in adult residents of California who are younger than 65 years old. Through secondary data gathering, analysis of an existing racial disparity in health care insurance acquisition was accomplished. The results of the project indicate that a relationship exists between race and health insurance acquisition, thereby promoting an opportunity to determine hindering factors and discuss recommendations that can help to alleviate them. Multiple factors that influence the acquisition of health insurance among residents in California have been cited. Some of these factors such as affordability and immigration status are more relevant in the Latino racial group compared to the others. The awareness of this relationship promotes implications towards a legislative focus on the underserved populations and a development of action plans and public policies that can aid in acquisition of health insurance for all.
