Survey: Latino groups worry about money for ACA enrollment

Kaiser Health News, July 19, 2013
The Obama administration is counting on Latinos to help make the Affordable Care Act a success, but there may be troubles ahead: Hispanic health centers and community organizations say they don't have the funding or resources to carry out the complicated sign up process for the 10 million Latinos who will be eligible for new public and subsidized health coverage options. "Even with the federal grants given out, it does not nearly cover the populations we have to reach and the amount of work we have to do," says Lori Baptista, director of policy at the Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center Inc. in Hayward, California.
