V. Conclusion (p. 45)

Inequalities in access to health care continue today to exacerbate racial and ethnic disparities in morbidity and mortality rates. As the history of civil rights litigation to address discrimination and inequality in health care delivery suggests, litigation can play a significant role in challenging inequity and generating reform. Nonetheless, there is currently no organized bar nor any effective agency to monitor or ensure civil rights compliance by health care providers. Civil rights advocates now have the opportunity to make a crucial difference in whether providers and insurers and, particularly, MCOs, will take seriously their obligations under civil rights laws or, instead, whether patterns of discrimination and exclusion will continue unrecorded and unabated.
