Reaching Minorities: Health Care Enrollment and Engagement
As we approach the ACA's third open enrollment, health insurance is still far from universal for some minority groups. One in five Hispanics were uninsured last year. And although coverage rates among African Americans have surged nationally, success has varied from state to state based on Medicaid expansion decisions and other factors. This webinar explored ways to increase coverage among minority populations and to improve understanding of how to use health insurance to access care.
Presentations included the following:
- lessons learned by Enroll America in the first two years of enrollment outreach
- the federal government's targeted efforts, including culturally competent resources to help consumers select and retain coverage
- a private-sector push to clarify coverage options under the ACA, increase overall enrollment and improve health literacy
