Factors affecting ethnic differences in the use of outpatient mental health services are analyzed in an insured, nonpoor population to determine if lower use by Blacks and Hispanics persists when socioeconomic and other factors are controlled.
To identify significant predictors of the probability and amount of use, insurance claims data for a population of 1.2 million federal employees insured by Blue Cross/Blue Shield in 1983 were analyzed with the Andersen and Newman model of health service utilization.
Logistic and ordinary least squares regression models were estimated for each ethnic group.
