Health Reform Law’s Benefits for Hispanics Largely Ignored
The federal health reform law would significantly benefit Hispanics, but experts say lawmakers are not doing a good job explaining the law's implications to the Hispanic electorate. If the reform law is fully implemented, more than 2.1 million Hispanics in California and 9 million nationwide would receive medical coverage. The California HealthCare Foundation's Center for Health Reporting contributed to this report. CHCF publishes California Healthline.
