"Our sense is that probably the claims data are giving us a better picture of the true dispari-ties here in services than in simply asking people whether they've received a preventive service or not," said Kevin Fiscella, the study's lead researcher and an associate professor of family medicine and community and preventive medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine.
