Health care costs predict standard of care in the US?

“black patients were less likely to be referred to care programs by AI systems than white patients, despite being sicker .. Poor performance was due to the algorithm predicting health care costs rather than potential illnesses, the study claimed.”

The US Senators should examine the nature of the environment and historical difference in the standard-of-living as experienced by the two groups. Perhaps that is the source of the discrepancy.
