Asian Americans face language barriers when purchasing health insurance

Most details regarding how to purchase health insurance are either in English or Spanish. This poses a problem for Asian American consumers who may experience a language barrier when it comes time to enroll, reports Kaiser Health News. For example: Last year, one Asian American woman believed her plan was canceled--she thought certain paperwork was missing when, in fact, she just hadn't paid her premium. Certain groups and advocates are acting on this issue, filing complaints that state the Department of Health and Human Services is not doing enough to explain details in other languages. Article
