  • 19% in the Individual Marketplace are Hispanic

  • 18% speak Spanish

Kelsey Price from Google, shared Four Key Truths about Hispanics:

  • Hispanics Maximize Mobile Media
  • Online is Hispanics’ GPS to the Store
  • 85% of Hispanics are between the ages of 18 and 49


Marcelo Rodriguez from Grupo Parada, highlighted that in order to enroll uninsured Latinos through Digital Media, healthcare providers must:

  • Build TRUST through CONTENT that is relevant to Latino values
  • Even though content might be currently out there, it is not connecting with them
  • SoMoLo LATINO: Social, Mobile and Local marketing, is the bridge to enrolling uninsured Latinos.
  • The SoMoLo LATINO approach allows you to get to the right people, at the right time, with the right content and through the right device.
