Survey: Uninsured Rates Fall Sharply for Young and Low-Income Latinos

Latino women

A new Commonwealth Fund survey shows that the Affordable Care Act is having a significant impact for many Latinos, a group that for decades has had among the highest uninsured rates in the United States. You can learn about the results in a new issue brief and infographic (available in both English and Spanish).

Groups seeing particularly big gains in coverage were Latino adults ages 19 and 34 and those with low incomes. Latinos in states that expanded eligibility for Medicaid have also seen their uninsured rates drop substantially.

In a Viewpoint published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, study coauthors Michelle Doty and Sara Collins and Commonwealth Fund President David Blumenthal, M.D., discuss the new findings.

Next month, The Commonwealth Fund will host a tweet chat on Latinos and the Affordable Care Act. Stay tuned for details.
