Racial and ethnic minorities are less likely to receive a mild cognitive impairment (MCI) diagnosis (an early sign of dementia). Compared with White beneficiaries, those who identified as racial and ethnic minorities were less likely to receive a timely dementia diagnosis, including Asians (54% less likely), Blacks (27% less likely), and Hispanics (38% less likely). While 23.3% of White beneficiaries received an incident MCI diagnosis, these estimates were substantially lower in Asian (12.3%), Black (18.2%), and Hispanic (15.8%) beneficiaries. These differences persisted after demographic (age, sex, comorbid conditions) and geographic (neighborhood, rurality) factors were accounted for . . .
