Abstract (Summary)

This study is based on a quantitative study of 1,254 monolingual Hispanic adults who live in California. The purpose of this study is to examine how health care utilization and health care discrimination affects health outcomes among monolingual Hispanic adults. The study is quantitative research utilizing secondary data obtained from the 2017 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). Having a personal doctor as the main medical provider was found to be associated with having heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and high blood pressure. Having been uninsured in the past 12 months was found to be associated with having heart disease, asthma, and high blood pressure. Having a usual source of care other than the emergency room was found to be associated with having diabetes, and high blood pressure. Also, the study found associations between health care discrimination variables and health outcomes such as having heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and high blood pressure.
