Improving the Road to Coverage: Policy Recommendations for Enrollment Success

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) presents a historic opportunity to provide affordable, quality health insurance and coverage to millions of uninsured and underinsured Americans. 
 
Many organizations and collaboratives, including Action for Health Justice, have been actively involved in implementing the ACA across the country. This brief highlights some of the major barriers Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) communities faced during the first Open Enrollment Period, followed by recommendations to build upon and improve outreach, education, and enrollment efforts in the future. Full implementation of AHJ’s recommendations will ensure many more AAs and NHPIs will be able to enroll in coverage, get the care they need, and make health care reform a reality for all communities.
