May is National Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Heritage Month
Over 7% of the U.S. population are Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders. Uninsured rates vary among the different ethnicities in this group.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is committed to policy and equity initiatives that help these communities find and use health care. During National Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, learn about the health needs of this population and find out how to reduce health disparities.
More Information, including resources in additional languages for your patients, can be found on the CMS Office of Minority Health, Health Observances webpage, Medicare & You handbook and the Coverage to Care webpage.
