Latino Health at Risk: What the American Health Care Act Would Mean

Access to quality health coverage and care is essential to living a healthy life. The Affordable Care Act (ACA, also known as Obamacare), has helped provide coverage to 20 million Americans, including 6 million Latinos since implementation of the law in 2013.

The uninsured rate for Latino adults under age 65 has declined by over 40 percent—from 43.2 percent in 2010 to 24.5 percent in 2016—the largest decline of any demographic group.
