The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided millions of Americans with health insurance coverage including the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities. However, information is scarce about the ways in which the ACA has affected and impacted the ethnic subgroups within the AANHPI communities during the first and second enrollment periods. These communities continue to face disparities in the midst of this new health care expansion. Furthermore, the end of the second enrollment period sparks much interest on how to increase enrollment in the remaining uninsured populations. These efforts are further complicated by the fact that social trends — e.g., socioeconomic status, cultural, language, etc. — are hidden behind aggregate data, concealing disparities that lead to the disproportionate access to healthcare in America.
