Health determinants, including environmental factors and individual influences, account for the majority of premature deaths in the United States. Increasing focus has been placed on improving the health of individuals, communities, and populations to decrease morbidity and mortality, improve health outcomes and decrease costs. However, health disparities for women based on race, disability or socioeconomic status are less understood. A strong relationship exists between health and income, and women represent the majority of the poor, including Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) recipients. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the influences of health determinants on perceived health status among low-income women 40-64 years of age receiving Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) benefits. The Model of Population Health Determinants and Health Status/Function conceptual framework is used to guide this pilot study, including the concepts of health determinants (including social environment, physical environment, individual response-behaviors and individual response-biology) and health status/function. While it is recognized that income plays a key role in health, it is not clear which other health determinants play a significant role in women's perception of their health status. Understanding influences on perceived health status is a critical component in designing and delivering public health and clinical services to this vulnerable population. Subjects in this study include 1,110 women 40 to 64 years of age who have completed a health assessment when enrolling in MMC between July 2000 and June 2002. The method of analysis includes descriptive statistics, t-tests and correlations between health determinants and health status/function. Results presented will focus future multidisciplinary intervention studies directed toward ameliorating health disparities for women. AN: MN030202
