This webinar is presented especially with Certified Enrollment Counselors in mind and will offer important information to guide CECs and consumers to key information to help make the best possible plan selection as well as where to seek assistance for very difficult and complex coverage problems.
We will be joined by Barbara Marquez, Deputy Director at the Office of the Patient Advocate who will demonstrate how consumers can use the newly released 2014-15 edition of the Health Care Quality Report Cards. These report cards provide quality ratings on the 16 largest health plans in California as well as over 200 medical groups. OPA staff will demonstrate how to navigate the report cards’ star ratings and scores for care given related to specific conditions. You’ll also learn about how to use the report cards to get information on how plans did on measures such as doctor-patient communication and ease of getting appointments.
The webinar will also cover how to help consumers when there are problems enrolling them in the right coverage or when there are issues getting the services they need once enrolled. Shirley Sanematsu, from the Western Center on Law and Poverty, will provide an overview of the state and local resources available to consumers from the Health Consumer Alliance.

Here in California we take getting children enrolled in health coverage very seriously and in a state where 39 percent of our population is Latino, it is important that California identify opportunities to help Latino children get the health insurance coverage they need to succeed. A recent report from the Georgetown Center for Children and Families (CCF) and the National Council of La Raza finds that California is on the right path.
In order for California to continue to be a leader in insuring Latino children, there is still a significant need to improve outreach and enrollment strategies. Latino children continue to be one and a half times as likely to be uninsured as other children. Nationally, an estimated 11.5 percent of Latino children were uninsured in 2013 compared to 7.1 percent of all children. In California, the percent of uninsured Latino children was 9.6, a number that is too high… READ MORE HERE
