Hispanic Caucus to HHS: Why No ObamaCare outreach?
August 19, 2017
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is requesting an “urgent meeting” with HHS in the wake of a report that the agency has effectively abandoned outreach efforts to Latinos. About 4 million Latinos have gained coverage since the ACA coverage expansion began in 2013, but the Latino uninsured rate remains well above the national average. Hispanic caucus members are asking for a meeting. “We urge HHS to prioritize Latino outreach and enrollment efforts in the 2018 enrollment period,” they write. Read the letter.
