How can Latinos and all people achieve good health?
A good first step is getting health insurance. But 1 in 10 people still don’t have coverage, especially among Latinos.
Despite making significant gains in coverage since the passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Latinos are the largest uninsured population in the nation. In 2015, 15.1% of Latinos lacked health coverage, compared to just 6.6% of whites.
Why is this? What can be done? What is being done?
