Latino enrollment needed to keep health care affordable
Sacramento Bee

Whether health insurance offered through Covered California will remain affordable largely depends on Latinos enrolling. Yet several weeks after launching its outreach and enrollment campaign, it is clear Covered California’s efforts are not working in the Latino community. The organization’s executive director, Peter Lee, stated publicly last week it is having a difficult time reaching Latinos.

Lee deserves credit for acknowledging there is a problem. Now he and his organization must aggressively act to come up with a culturally competent solution.
