Abstract

Objective. To examine the association of minority status to perceived barriers to care and health-related quality of life in families presenting to a Medical Home. Method. Fifty-three caregivers were classified as minority or nonminority caregivers based on self-reported race/ethnicity. Caregivers completed a measure of perceived barriers to care and child health-related quality of life. Results. Minority caregivers reported more perceived barriers to care with regard to the pragmatics of obtaining health care. The association between perceived barriers to care and child health-related quality of life was moderated by minority status. Perceived barriers to care were only related to child health-related quality of life among minority caregivers. Conclusion. Minority families may have difficulties with the cost of health care or logistics of obtaining health care for their child. Perceived health care barriers may still exist within pediatric Medical Homes for minority caregivers and affect child health-related quality of life.
