This Thursday, March 6, at 11:30 am ET, President Obama will participate in a historic townhall on Latinos and the Affordable Care Act at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The townhall “Tu Salud y La Nueva Ley: Conversación con el Presidente” (Your Health and the New Law: A Conversation with the President) will be an opportunity for you to ask the President questions about the Affordable Care Act. You can join the conversation and submit questions on social media using the hashtag #TuSaludyObama (Your Health and Obama) and #Asegurate.


The townhall will be hosted by the Asegúrate campaign, also known as “Get Covered”, a partnership between the California Endowment; Covered California, and the largest Spanish-language media outlets in the U.S., including Univision, Telemundo, and La Opinion-impreMedia. The townhall with President Obama which will be televised, livestreamed and broadcast over radio, digital and social platforms in Spanish, will provide an opportunity for Latinos across the country to learn more about how to enroll in affordable, quality health care via the Health Insurance Marketplace.


Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, 10.2 million uninsured Latinos have the opportunity to purchase quality, affordable coverage through the Marketplace, and as many as 8 million of those could get a break on costs. Just last month, the Department of Health and Human Services released a report that finds nearly 8 in 10 uninsured Latinos may qualify for Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP),  or lower costs on monthly premiums through the Health Insurance Marketplace.


Thursday’s Asegúrate townhall with President Obama will be a great opportunity to learn more about how you and your loved ones can enroll in quality and affordable coverage, so submit your questions with the hashtag #TuSaludyObama and tune in at whitehouse.gov and whitehouse.gov/espanol.
