Health Insurance Marketplace: First tutorial in Spanish, from HolaDoctor teaches Hispanics how to register with Covered California., a leading resource for health information for Hispanics, announced today that they have released a video tutorial aimed at helping Spanish-speakers get health coverage with Covered California.


ATLANTA, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ —, the leading website offering health information to Hispanics, published a video tutorial with detailed information on how to enroll, apply for a subsidy, choose plans, and shop for coverage in Covered California, California’s health care insurance marketplace.

“Health insurance marketplaces are still completely new to many, and we want to help our community easily understand, in their own language, how they can enroll,” said Liliana Sanchez Andres, Programming VP at HolaDoctor. “The healthcare system and the new law are complicated, and many people need guidance to understand their options, rights and responsibilities. We are sure that this video will help answer many questions and make the enrollment process a lot easier.”

The video, “Step by step: how to get health insurance in California” ( ), shows the enrollment process end-to-end. It demonstrates how to apply for subsidies, compare plans for each family member, and choose the best plan and purchase, all in only nine minutes.

Apart from being the first video tutorial on the subject available in Spanish, this video also offers those looking for health insurance additional information on the most critical phases of the process. Many Hispanic families confront the complex reality of having members with different immigration status: for example, parents who do not have legal residency status, but their children are citizens. When watching the video, they will learn that parents do not need to include their social security number when they enter to enroll and will still be able to buy insurance on behalf of those relatives who are citizens.

In May 2013, five months before the insurance marketplaces opened, reinforced its commitment with the Hispanic community by launching a complete section on Health Insurance. In that section, Hispanics who want to learn more about health insurance can find clear and detailed information on health insurance, different coverage and plans, options to get medical insurance and how Medicaid and Medicare work. Users can also access an exclusive Comprehensive Online Health Insurance Information Center containing information that will help Spanish-speakers understand the law and their health rights. The center also contains direct links to state and federal insurance markets.
