VI. Conclusion

      Given the link between Title VI and the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965, it is ironic that notions about who is more worthy of governmental help, or simply the pursuit of other worthy goals such as cost savings, can lead to policies that serve non-minority populations to a greater proportional degree than minority populations. The national goal of eliminating health care disparities requires that Pennsylvania make best efforts to anticipate such results in advance, and invite the public to join in a discussion about priorities and alternatives.
