6 Achieving Equity by Building a Bridge from Eligible to Enrolled (Updated January 2013) Introduction In January 2011, California became the first state in the country to establish a health insurance exchange, a key component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that will provide individuals and small businesses an opportunity to shop for and buy comprehensive health insurance. Low- to moderateincome families, between 133% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), i will be eligible for tax credits to help keep the costs of coverage affordable in Covered California (California s Health Benefit Exchange). Developed by the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN), this fact sheet updates data released in a previous report, Achieving Equity by Building a Bridge from Eligibility to Enrolled, using the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research s California Simulation of Insurance Markets (CalSIM) model. ii The CalSIM model is used to estimate the effects of specific provisions of the ACA on family and employer decisions about insurance coverage in California. While communities of color and people who speak English less than very well (limited English proficient, or LEP) represent a significant portion of those eligible for subsidies in Covered California, initial findings suggest that they may be less likely to enroll. Over a million LEP adults eligible for subsidies in Covered California Over 2.7 million adult Californians will be eligible to receive federal tax credits to purchase affordable health coverage in Covered California. iii Of these eligible adults, 66% (about 1.8 million) will be people of color (Figure 1) and 40% (about 1.09 million) will speak English less than very well (Figure 2). iv Figure 1: Eligible Population for Subsidies in Covered California by Race/Ethnicity (2013) 2% Latino Figure 2: Adult Population Eligible for Subsidies in Covered California by English Proficiency (2013) 34% 13% 4% 47% African American Asian/Pacific Islander White Native American/Alaska Native/Multiple Race 40% 60% Native English Speaker/Very Well Limited English Proficiency: Well/Not Well/Not at All
7 Language barriers may reduce LEP participation Eligible LEP individuals are projected to enroll at lower rates than their non-lep counterparts. Of the 60 LEP adults eligible for subsidies in Covered California, 56% are predicted to enroll by 2019 if language were 55 not a barrier (Figure 3). However, without appropriate and effective multilingual outreach and education 50 efforts, just 46% are expected to enroll. The difference 45 between these two estimates shows that there is the potential to enroll upward of 119,000 more LEP 40 individuals in Covered California if enrollment is conducted with proactive outreach efforts directed toward the LEP population. Figure 3: Percentage of Subsidy-Eligible Adults Enrolled in Covered California (2019) Language needs are addressed Language needs are not addressed Projected languages spoken CalSIM also provides insight into the LEP adults projected to receive subsidies in Covered California in Though these enrollees are predominantly Spanish-speaking (81%, over 405,000), a significant number speak other languages. More than 95,000 people speak a language other than English or Spanish at home, with roughly 30,000 speaking Chinese, 15,000 Vietnamese, and 10,000 Korean. v Recommendations Our health care system must adapt to meet the needs of California s diverse population. To ensure that all eligible Californians are enrolled in health insurance programs, have equal access to affordable coverage and care, and receive quality services, the following recommendations must be implemented: Target resources for consumer assistance to those with the highest need. Resources must be designated for in-person assistance to communities with the highest needs who may lack access to the internet and other traditional methods of enrollment, including low-income populations, immigrants, LEP, and persons with disabilities. Invest in culturally and linguistically appropriate marketing and outreach. While the recent availability of $40 million in funds from Covered California is an important first step, ongoing resources should be made available to community organizations, ethnic media, and others who have experience marketing to communities of color. Involve communities of color in decision-making processes. Communities of color must be an integral partner in these processes to inform policy decisions that will have an impact on access to coverage and care. Strengthen data collection efforts to help identify and address disparities. As new systems are developed it is critical to build a more effective data collection infrastructure and identify ways to improve current systems to better understand and reduce disparities. Invest in primary care and workforce diversity in underserved areas. With more than 4 million newly eligible for coverage under the ACA, California needs to be ready to meet the new demands for care, such as strengthening the capacity of our safety net providers. Promote prevention and wellness. We must use this historic opportunity to transform our health care system into one that invests in health equity by keeping people well and ensure that federal and state resources allocated for prevention programs are preserved. i In 2012, 400% of the Federal Poverty Level was $44,680 for a single adult and $92,200 for a family of four. ii Findings are based on CalSIM, version 1.8 Base scenario and CalSIM, version 1.8 Base scenario adjusted for LEP. iii This does not include nearly a million Californians who are prohibited from purchasing coverage with their own money due to their citizenship status. iv Data on English proficiency is only for adults 18 and older. v The projected languages spoken are based on a more conservative estimate assuming that language is a barrier to enrollment.
8 How Health Reform Benefits You and California s Latino Families All Latino families stand to benefit from the new health care law. This is true whether you are uninsured, have Medi-Cal or Medicare, or private insurance. If you have no health insurance, help is on the way. If you re a senior, you ll benefit from Medicare rebates on drugs and free preventive care. If you have health insurance, you can keep your current doctor and peace of mind, knowing that insurance companies cannot drop or limit your coverage when you re sick and need it. Whether you have insurance or not, the new health care law also promotes healthy living through worksite wellness programs and community grants to increase access to healthy foods and physical activity. If you need insurance More options for affordable coverage If you have Medi-Cal or Medicare Increased access and better services If you have private insurance Peace of mind and affordable coverage If You Need Insurance More Options for Affordable Coverage By providing more options for affordable coverage, the new health care law will help many thousands of Latinos obtain coverage. Lawful immigrants will be eligible for all the provisions below. For Young Adults You Can Stay on Your Family s Plan until Age 26: Beginning immediately, young adults will be able to stay on their parent s health plan through the age of 26. This will help the one in three Latino youth who went without health insurance during Medi-Cal Expands to Help You and Your Family: Starting in 2014, if you make less than $14,431 as a single adult or $29,367 for a family of four, you ll be eligible for Medi- Cal. This expansion will provide coverage for more than one million Latinos in California. Prenatal care and emergency Medi-Cal is still available to all low-income persons regardless of immigration status. The Health Insurance Exchange Will Provide You with Affordable Private Coverage: Also starting in 2014, if you make less than $43,400 as a single adult or $88,200 for a family of four, you will be able to buy affordable coverage from an insurance exchange. Your premium will cost no more than 10% of your income the government will cover the rest. Citizen or lawfully present immigrant children of undocumented parents can get coverage through the exchange. Undocumented immigrants cannot buy insurance from the exchange and are exempt from the requirement to have insurance.
9 Your Small Business Employer Will Get Help to Cover You: 500,000 small businesses in California will be able to get tax credits to help provide coverage for their employees. If You Have Medi-Cal or Medicare Increased Access and Better Services Help for Seniors on Medicare: The law closes the Medicare donut hole, helping hundreds of thousands of Latinos pay for their prescription drugs, starting in It also provides preventive services for free. More Doctors and Specialists to Serve You: Payments to doctors will be increased under the new law. This means there will be more doctors and specialist to serve you. Shorten Wait Times for Services: More doctors and services will mean shorter wait times for care. Supporting Our Safety Net: The law will bring in an estimated $1.4 billion dollars to support California s community health centers, which serve hundreds of thousands of Latinos. If You Have Private Insurance: Peace of Mind and Affordable Coverage For the 5.5 million Latinos in California who have private insurance, your health insurance will be more secure, affordable, and help keep you healthy. Giving You Peace of Mind: Health insurers will no longer be able to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions or drop it when you get sick. This provision applies to children starting this fall and to all adults in No Lifetime Caps on Care: Starting this fall, the new law prohibits insurers from limiting how much they will have to pay for care. No one will have to worry about losing their house or going bankrupt if you or someone you love gets sick. Putting Prevention First: All new private insurance plans will have to cover preventive services such as screenings and tests for free, starting this fall. If You Are an Immigrant: Benefits Are Available All the benefits of health reform are available to lawful immigrants and everyone will have access to expanded community health services. Lawful Immigrants Keep Medi-Cal: Lawful immigrants are still eligible for Medi-Cal without a waiting period. Lawful Immigrants Eligible for Help in the Exchange: Lawful immigrants will be eligible for tax credits and subsidies to purchase insurance in the exchange without a waiting period. Insurance Exchange Closed to Undocumented Immigrants: Undocumented immigrants cannot buy insurance from the exchange and are exempt from the requirement to have health insurance.
10 Medi-Cal Expansion: What s at Stake for Communities of Color Since the establishment of Medicare and Medicaid in the 60s, our country has prioritized protecting vulnerable populations our elderly, children, poor, blind, and disabled. But not all low-income people are eligible for Medicaid, and in California, the primary population left out childless adults are predominantly from communities of color. With the landmark signing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), we are finally closing this gap after almost 50 years. In 2014, nearly everyone making up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) i will be eligible for Medi-Cal (California s Medicaid program). California s communities of color have a large stake in how the state expands Medi-Cal. We cannot let this opportunity pass us by we must make sure that California expands the program to its fullest, conducts culturally and linguistically appropriate outreach, and streamlines the eligibility process so that everyone who is eligible is enrolled. The Imperative for Communities of Color In California, communities of color represent 60% of the population but account for 75% of the uninsured. ii As a result, communities of color make up a large majority of Californians who will be newly eligible for coverage under the Medi-Cal expansion. Of the approximately 1,420,000 nonelderly adults who will be newly eligible to receive Medi-Cal, 2 out of 3 (67% or 950,000) are from communities of color (see Figure 1). Over one-third (35% or 500,000) of the newly eligible will speak English less than very well (see Figure 2). How the state chooses to reach out to and educate those who are eligible for Medi-Cal will have a significant impact on enrollment. Simplifying enrollment procedures, implementing a robust culturally and linguistically outreach effort, and preenrolling individuals from existing health and human services programs are critical to maximizing participation. Even with these strategies in place, projections based on the California Simulation of Figure 2: By English Proficiency Insurance Markets (CalSIM) estimate that only 55% of those who are newly eligible for Medi-Cal, or 780,000 people, will enroll in Without these efforts, 300,000 Californians, 70% of whom would be from communities of color, are expected not to enroll in Medi-Cal despite being eligible. 8% 48% 35% Predicted Population Eligible for Medi-Cal Expansion in % 4% Figure 1: By Race/Ethnicity 65% 33% White Latino African American A&PI Other & Multiple Race Speaks English Very Well Speaks English Less Than Very Well
11 The Imperative for the State The Medicaid expansion through the ACA is a tremendous opportunity for California to dramatically decrease its uninsured population at minimum cost to the state. The newly eligible Medi-Cal enrollees will be fully funded by the federal government from 2014 through 2017, slowly decreasing to 90% by The influx of federal dollars means expanding Medi-Cal is a cost-effective way for the state to lower health care costs by enabling Californians to get the care they need and stay healthy. It will also create a healthier workforce and benefit state and local economies by sustaining jobs in the health sector. iii Policy Recommendations 1. Implement the Full Expansion of Medi-Cal: The ACA provides an historic opportunity to reduce health disparities in our state by ensuring access to health coverage for individuals and families up to 138% FPL. The full expansion of Medi-Cal will result in lower health care costs and better health outcomes as more and more Californians are able to access critical primary and preventive services in place of more costly emergency room care. 2. Maximize Medi-Cal Enrollment: We must take advantage of the changes in Medi-Cal by using fast, confidential, and effective methods to ensure timely enrollment. For example, we should identify and pre- or auto-enroll those we know will be eligible for Medi-Cal now. We must also maximize enrollment of eligible individuals under the Low-Income Health Program (LIHP), county programs established to provide health care to uninsured adults who will transition to Medi-Cal in Simplify Enrollment Processes: Strong collaboration between state and local government agencies and providers should be encouraged so that programs such as the LIHP, CalFresh, and others that already collect data on citizenship and income can share this data and accelerate enrollment. Additionally, individuals should be allowed to attest to this information when documentation is unavailable or obtaining the data will cause undue hardship. This will allow quick verification of eligibility for public benefits and avoid unnecessary delays in application processing. 4. Ensure Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services from Outreach to Care: With a large portion of the newly eligible speaking English less than very well, we must provide accurate, thorough, and easily understandable information in multiple languages to not only help them sign-up for Medi-Cal but also get the care they need. Additionally, we must prioritize training and certification of medical interpreters and prepare our health care professionals to work with California s diverse communities. Methodology The California Simulation of Insurance Markets (CalSIM), developed by the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, uses four data sets to model employer and individual behavior to estimate the impact of the ACA on the enrollment of individuals in insurance coverage in California. CalSIM findings presented in this fact sheet are based on CalSIM Version 1.8.
