HolaDoctor, the leading health website for Hispanics, conducted a survey of Hispanics in February to learn about their opinion of the Affordable Care Act and their plans to purchase this enrollment cycle.

The survey was conducted in Spanish and involved almost 700 respondents, of which those reporting not possessing legal residency were excluded from the survey analysis. Of all respondents, 62% reported that they did not have insurance, and 57% reported having intentions to buy a plan via Obamacare (the term Obamacare was used as it is more well-known in the Hispanic community). Of those who do not have health insurance, 77% said they planned on buying a plan via the health insurance marketplace; however, the majority (55%) reported that they would buy a plan in March rather than in February.
