Communities of color, the majority of the newly insured under Affordable Care Act (ACA), will be most negatively impacted from national efforts to repeal the law. Prior to the ACA communities of color, who made up just over half of all residents, were three-quarters (74%) of California’s uninsured. The ACA significantly helped to close the coverage gap, cutting uninsurance rates by more than half for Asian Americans and African Americans between 2013 and 2015 and reducing rates for Latinos at slightly lower rates.
