Trump Presidency Risks Health Of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians And Pacific Islanders

In 2010, before a ACA was implemented, over 2.3 million Asian Americans did not have health word — 15.7 percent of a Asian American population. Last year, a series of uninsured in a communities had decreased to 1.3 million, or 7.8 percent. This change was a biggest among any other competition or ethnicity. Accounting for a fast Asian American competition expansion in a past 5 years, as many as 2.7 million Asian Americans would be during risk for losing entrance to health caring if a ACA was repealed. Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islander are also during risk. More than 85,000 Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders were uninsured in 2010, 17.4 percent of a population. In 2015, that rate fell to 9.9 percent, fewer than 55,000. If a rate returned to pre-ACA levels, over 94,000 would be during risk of losing their entrance to health care.
