Congress passed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, providing coverage for over 20 million people. Since the passing of this landmark law the exchanges have been affected by fewer health insurance choices and rising premiums. This briefing explores the policy conditions related to the exchanges’ individual health insurance market, with focus on the Latino population. A distinguished panel of Health policy experts will address past performance and the upcoming landscape for the ACA health insurance marketplaces. Emphasis will be given on how these topics interconnect with Latinos’ challenges in health insurance enrollment as well as the coverage progress done under the ACA for this population. Finally, the discussion will also be geared toward what the role of insurance enrollment could look like in the foreseeable future and on how to preserve and increase insurance coverage for Latinos.
The 2017 CHCI Capitol Hill Policy Briefing Series is the culmination of CHCI’s premier, nine-month Graduate Fellowship Program.
