Abstract:

On July 21, 2016, the Roundtable on Health Literacy of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop on health literacy and health insurance literacy in the context of health reform in the United States. Since 2010, the year the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) became law, the roundtable has convened two workshops related to this topic as well as commissioned two papers, and several members have prepared individually written perspectives. The roundtable's attention to the topic of health insurance is appropriate because health reform has created major changes in the health care system in this country. It has brought millions of people into the system that previously did not have access. In addition, many of these individuals have limited experience with health care and health insurance and are from populations that traditionally have high rates of low health literacy. The workshop focused on the challenges and opportunities in helping consumers obtain, understand, and use health insurance.
