Individuals of Hispanic American or Latino origin are among many millions of Americans at high risk of lacking health insurance who are making considerable gains under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Historically, Hispanic Americans/Latinos have been more likely to lack health insurance than any other ethnic or racial group. The full implementation of the ACA, however, could substantially reduce this disparity and has the potential to be one of the most important developments affecting Latino health care.
