The Executive Director of the New York State of Health Marketplace says the state has managed to get more of the Latino community enrolled.
A recent report by the state health insurance exchange shows a four percent increase in the number of Latinos who’ve signed up for coverage since 2014.
Since the end of the 2015 open enrollment, 25 percent of those insured self-identified as Latino.
Donna Frescatore, executive director of the state exchange, says it’s related to a concerted effort in the states Latino communities.
"We introduced a new Spanish online application that we’re getting great feedback on. And it’s getting a good deal of use; we want to continue to expand that. And also, we’re present at many cultural events throughout the state in Latino communities," says Frescatore.
