Income-related inequity in health care delivery favoring the rich is higher in the U.S. than in other developed countries.  Policies in the U.S. over the last two decades improved access to health care for many low-income Americans, potentially reducing inequity.  I begin this talk by describing the concept of income-related equity in health care delivery and the measurement of inequity.  I then report the findings of a study that used the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey to assess trends in income-related inequity in health care delivery among working-age Americans between 2008 and 2019.
