on) of them have limited proficiency in English. The study shows the importance of adopting a diverse strategy for outreach and education.

"The exchange is a key opportunity to make Californians healthier," said Ellen Wu, executive director of the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network. "We have to do this right. Our success in implementing this new program will be measured not just by the number of people enrolled but by the state's ability to reach those who are most often left behind. We have to target resources through multicultural and multilingual outreach to ensure that communities of color who are eligible, particularly people who speak English less than very well, enroll in coverage."

The study was conducted based on analyses using the California Simulation of Insurance Markets model, a micro-simulation developed by UCLA and UC Berkeley researchers, which uses a range of official data sources (including the California Health Interview Survey) to estimate the impact of various elements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on employer decisions to offer insurance coverage and on individual decisions to obtain coverage in California.

The development of the model was supported through funding by The California Endowment, the California Health Benefit Exchange and the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network.
