Health Insurance Exchanges and the Potential Impact on Uninsured Minority Populations Webinar
August 30, 2012
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act creates a marketplace for health insurance, called health insurance exchanges, intended to allow consumers choices in picking their health coverage and to fill the gaps for people who are not covered through Medicaid or their employer. Subsidies will be provided to those with incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. Minority populations, specifically Hispanics and African Americans may be particularly impacted by this new coverage options as they tend to have lower rates of employer-sponsored health coverage. This webinar focuses on how exchanges may affect minority populations and how two states are addressing this new option.
