The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in conjunction with the 15th Annual Hmong National Conference invites you to a panel discussion on the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act was signed into law over one year ago and provides Americans with greater freedom and control over health care choices.
One in six Asian Americans, and one in four Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders are either uninsured or underinsured. The Affordable Care Act expands affordable coverage to as many as 2.5 million Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who will become eligible for new insurance coverage options because of the law.
This panel discussion will raise awareness of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
