How Social Security Helped Desegregate America’s Hospitals

Social Security and the Medicare act played a pivotal role in desegregating America's hospitals. By proper management and future planning, Social Security can continue to narrow the divides and disparities with which the US still struggles.

As we celebrate Black History Month, I want to share an incredible story. Back in the ‘60s, the Social Security Administration played a vital role in desegregating hospitals in America.

Social Security Disability Insurance provides monthly payments to more than 10 million people. Supplemental Security Income disability benefits reach a partially overlapping group of roughly seven million. Testimony of vocational experts is central to a large number of the hearings that help allocat
