The Commonwealth Fund hosted a one-hour tweet chat on October 16 at 1:00 p.m., E.T., to discuss the health insurance gains made by Latinos under the Affordable Care Act and the challenges they still face. The chat participants discussed which Latino groups are getting covered at the highest rates—and which groups are lagging on enrollment.
We were joined by special guests Mayra E. Alvarez, Director of the State Exchange Group for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, and Annette Raveneau, National Latino Press Secretary and Regional Communications Director at Enroll America. The Commonwealth Fund's Michelle Doty and Sara R. Collins, coauthors, with Petra Rasmussen, of Catching Up: Latino Health Coverage Gains and Challenges Under the Affordable Care Act moderated.
