Historically, AAPI communities have faced significant barriers to accessing affordable health insurance and quality health services, and these barriers have contributed to health disparities. Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander communities are likely to lack health insurance coverage. Health conditions that are common in the AAPI community — like diabetes, obesity, cancer, HIV/AIDS and mental illness — often go undiagnosed and untreated.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will remove obstacles to care that many AAPIs historically have faced and ensure that they will have better access to stable, affordable health insurance and high quality health care suited to their needs.
