Learn about the Health Insurance Marketplace in Chinese (Mandarin)

The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) invites you to join our Google Hangout in Chinese on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 3:00 pm ET.

One in seven Chinese Americans lacks health insurance. With almost half of all Chinese Americans report speaking English less than very well, Chinese Americans are among the highest limited English proficient populations in the nation. To help provide information to limited English proficiency communities, the White House Initiative on AAPIs is hosting a series of online Google+ Hangouts in AAPI languages. The next Hangout will be in Mandarin.

Access to quality, affordable coverage is critically important to AAPI individuals and families, and now, it will be more accessible than ever through the Affordable Care Act and the new Health Insurance Marketplace.

During the Hangout, representatives from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will answer your questions and provide information on how to obtain health care coverage through the new Marketplace. We’ve already hosted a Hangout in Korean and Vietnamese, and we are looking forward to our first Hangout in Mandarin.

The Chinese language Hangout will take place on Thursday, January 23, 2014 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM CST (1:00 – 2:00 PM MST). We hope you will join us by watching live at a local viewing party or online by joining our Google Hangout.  You may also submit your questions during the event via the Google+ ‘Ask a Question’ feature, or in advance via email, or Twitter at @WhiteHouseAAPI. More information on the in-language Hangouts can be found at WHIAAPI’s website, and more information about enrolling can be found at HealthCare.gov.

Date: Thursday, January 23, 2014
Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (Central)

The event will be live streamed on our Google+ event page. http://bit.ly/ChineseACA
