Covered California attracting lots of Latinos this year
Sacramento Business Journal

A significant uptick in Latinos appear to have applied for coverage through Covered California since the second open enrollment period began Nov. 15, according to new data released Thursday by the state health benefit exchange. Half the consumers who have applied for coverage, been deemed eligible for the program — and provided information about their race/ethnicity — are Latino. Among other large groups, 23 percent are white, 11 percent Asian and six percent African American.
