PhRMA Launches New Spanish-Language Health Care Resources
PhRMA Lanza Nuevos Recursos del Cuidado de la Salud en Español
Bilingual resources on health care and insurance added to AccessBetterCoverage.org
WASHINGTON, Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) launched Access BetterCoverage.org/espanol, a hub of Spanish-language resources on health care, health insurance and tips for shopping for health coverage.

The new site introduces important resources to help people better understand how health insurance works and what to expect from their coverage. The site includes a series of Spanish-language white board videos explaining basic insurance terms like deductibles, copays and coinsurance, and how formularies work as well as a glossary of health insurance terms and lists of questions to ask when picking a plan.
There are more than 50 million Hispanics living in the United States and in 2013 accounted for nearly one-third of the non-elderly uninsured population. Educational resources on health care coverage are important to ensure patients have the information and questions to ask to choose the best coverage for them and their family and access the treatments and services they need.
"Everyone should be able to access trusted health care information, regardless of the language they speak. We know health coverage can be confusing and overwhelming – particularly for those purchasing it for the first time – so we created a simple, straightforward resource to help demystify the process and equip patients to make coverage decisions that are right for them," said PhRMA President and CEO John J. Castellani.
