Latinos are Encouraged to Share Why #CoverageMatters


Share On Social!

What does having health care coverage mean to you? The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) wants to know!

Since its passing, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has helped over 20 million people attain health care coverage. Over four million Latinos are among those that have gained insurance, lowering the overall rate of uninsured Latinos by nearly 8%.

Since the beginning of Open Enrollment, HHS has been asking for people on social media to share their stories on social media how the ACA has benefited them and their loved ones by using the hashtag #CoverageMatters.

In order to reduce health disparities, it is critical to address inequities in programs, practices, and policies. Join our site, connect with others, and get involved.

People can read what everyone is saying by visiting the #CoverageMatters website.

Leading up to the Dec. 15 deadline for Open Enrollment, people are encouraged to continue sharing their messages online.
