Expanding Health Care Coverage
January 2008–December 2008DOWNLOAD FULL REPORT
One key battle in addressing the number of uninsured is getting people who are eligible for public health insurance programs to enroll in them.
Another is keeping them enrolled. Involuntary disenrollment from public health insurance coverage is an ongoing problem for all beneficiaries, but is particularly problematic for Chinese non-English speakers. This grant funded a public awareness campaign to help Chinese beneficiaries recognize re-enrollment materials when they arrived in the mail, understand the materials’ importance, and continue their health insurance coverage.
