Health Plan’s are beginning to understand that the diversity of America is changing as rapidly as the aging of America. That in order to be successful in the coming years, greater emphasis on the Hispanic community must be a key strategy. In fact, the ACA has enrolled over 4 Million Hispanic members since its inception. Some key facts:

  • Last year, an estimated 8 in 10 uninsured Latinos qualified for Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP), or lower costs on monthly premiums through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
  • 8.8 million Latinos with private health insurance now have access to preventive services like mammograms, cervical cancer screenings, or flu shots with no co-pay or deductible.
  • 913,000 Latino adults between the ages of 19 and 26 who would have been uninsured now have coverage under their parents’ plan.
  • 4.2 million Latinos (ages 18-64) gained health insurance coverage, lowering the uninsured rate among Latinos by 7.7 percentage points.
  • If all states took advantage of new opportunities to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act, 95 percent of eligible uninsured Latinos might qualify for Medicaid, CHIP, or programs to help lower the cost of health insurance coverage in the Marketplace.

The Equality Health Hispanic Care Partnership model allows for turnkey access to a program that can be customized and branded to your organization’s needs. We help support our Health Plan partners through programs designed for:

  • Member Growth & Retention
  • Administrative Support
  • Clinical Integration
  • Cultural Care Management
  • Population Health Technology

In the new healthcare arena, Health Plans are under tremendous pressure to achieve higher quality, lower costs, and manage in an environment of growing regulatory oversight. We believe there will be future pressures to support underserved communities and solve for health disparities. With the Equality Health partnership, we can help health plans become better integrated into their culture membership, expand their relationships with independent providers and community health organizations, and move from an episodic healthcare delivery system to a value-based design built on population health technology that produces automated reporting for encounters, HEDIS, STARS, and care gaps for simplified regulatory compliance and reporting.
