Last week, we launched an english language health care app designed to help you understand the impact of the Affordable Care Act in your life.
Thousands of people have learned of the many benefits they now have, or soon will have, thanks to health care reform – benefits like free diabetes and breast cancer screenings, health insurance for 9 million uninsured Hispanics, and protection for those who have pre-existing conditions.
It’s important information – especially for a community like ours which suffers from high rates of preventable illnesses like diabetes and in which many of us don’t have insurance. That’s why we’re launching the health care app in Spanish.
Once you've got the details, we're counting on you to help get the word out. Share the summary of your own benefits with your friends through email, Facebook, and Twitter -- because these changes could lead to a life-saving screening, coverage in the event of a catastrophic accident, or a fairer price for someone you know.
Because ultimately, this is about making sure everyone – including Hispanics – is receiving the health care they need.
Find out how the Affordable Care Act benefits you and your family – and then share the app with all of your friends and loved ones.
