Latinos are not only the largest racial/ethnic minority in the United States, but also the youngest (with a median age of 27). The complex U.S. health care system can be particularly challenging for racial/ethnic minorities and immigrant populations. Racial/ethnic healthcare disparities arise in the context of social and economic inequalities, including racial and ethnic discrimination and mistrust. However, little research has analyzed the effects on mistrust and discrimination on health care outcomes among Latinos. In this presentation, I will present findings from two related studies that examine 1) the association between immigration status and perceived health care discrimination; and 2) the associations between medical mistrust, perceived discrimination, and satisfaction with health care. The sample included 387 young-adult Latinos (ages 18 to 25) living in Oregon. Health care discrimination was more prevalent among foreign born (45%) than US-born Latinos (32%). In multivariate analyses, foreign-born Latinos were more likely to experience health care discrimination (OR = 2.10, 95%CI: 1.16–3.82). In ordered logistic regression models, medical mistrust and perceived discrimination were independently associated with satisfaction with health care (OR=0.54, 95%CI: 0.39 – 0.76; OR=0.92, 95%CI: 0.86 – 0.99). These results suggest that young-adult Latinos experience high levels of discrimination and medical mistrust in health care settings. Future research will test the validity and reliability of a Latino health care discrimination scale, which could be used in health care monitoring systems and interventions towards reducing the negative effects of discrimination on racial/ethnic disparities in access to and quality of care.
