Readiness to Implement the Affordable Care Act in the Latino Community Among Health Centers and Community-Based Organizations Community health centers (CHCs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) are well-suited to provide coverage under the Affordable Care Act for the Latino population, as these organizations utilize targeted strategies and are trusted sources of linguistically and culturally appropriate services and information. To gain a better understanding of their outreach and enrollment strategies and their needs, NCLR and John Snow, Inc. (JSI) conducted a national survey of Latino-serving CHCs and CBOs. The survey examined how the organizations provided or planned to provide outreach, enrollment, and renewal assistance to Latino clients as well as how they assisted them in selecting health plans and providers.
