Medicaid and CHIP Critical for Latino Families Facing Financial Hardship

Fact Sheet

Hispanics are less likely than non-Hispanics to have access to traditional health insurance through the workplace, so public health coverage programs, such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), are critical for Latino families who would otherwise go uninsured. Medicaid and CHIP connect nearly ten million Latinos–two-thirds of whom are children–with affordable health care services that are essential to maintaining good health outcomes. Medicaid and CHIP will be more important than ever to low-income Latino families’ ability to weather an economic downturn without compromising their health or their finances.
