Hypertension care in insured and uninsured clients in an urban nurse-managed center was compared in this study. Data for the study came from chart audits of forty females and twelve males all of African American descent. A tool was developed which merged Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set criteria with the Joint National Committee on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (1997) criteria. The most significant finding was near comparable hypertension control among the two groups. No difference was found in systolic blood pressure (BP) control (t=-.825; df=50; p=.413). However, the uninsured group had a slightly greater average diastolic BP (x=85) in comparison with the insured group (x=80). Independent Samples Test found no significant difference in the number of BP medications or the number of risk factors. A significant difference was found in the number of Nurse Practitioner (NP) visits per year between the two groups and the number of Physician consults. The uninsured group averaged 3.2 more visits per year. Even in clients who lacked resources for anti-hypertensive prescriptions, the NPs at this site were able to implement a process of care that controlled BP and limited target organ damage.
