The stakes are high for Latinos when it comes to the fate of health care reform. The expansion of health coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will substantially increase the number of insured Americans, and new estimates project that the largest increases in rates of insurance will be among Hispanics. Although the law is not a panacea for Hispanic health care access, it is a step forward that will benefit millions in the community. As the nation waits for the outcome of the U.S. Supreme Court challenge to the law, NCLR examines the potential gains in Latino health coverage that hang in the balance of the Court's decision.
