As the Supreme Court holds hearings on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act this week, it is worth noting the ways Obamacare is improving the lives of Latinos. Given that Latinos are more likely to be uninsured than any other ethnic group, it comes as no surprise that a majority (66 percent) of Latino voters support the law, which aims to insure all Americans. Obamacare has already made 9 million more Latinos eligible for health coverage.
By 2050 Latinos will make up 30 percent of the population. The Affordable Care Act takes these demographic shifts into account by helping Latinos gain access to critical preventive services, protecting those with pre-existing conditions, and making health coverage more affordable for everyone.
Laura Pereyra and Madeline Meth outline the top seven ways the Affordable Care Act is improving the lives of Latino Americans.
