From The Hill newspaper:
The Spanish-language version of the ObamaCare website will not be ready by the end of the month, despite administration assurances that it would be.
Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters told The Associated Press that the administration will launch the Spanish-language version in early December. . . .
The administration now says it will hold off promoting the Spanish language site until later in the year, saying it wants to gather feedback from advocacy groups after the site launches.
“We think it's important to engage with key stakeholders and organizations in this process and get their feedback,” Peters told the AP.
Millions of Latinos remain without health insurance, and their enrollment is considered central to the broader success of the Affordable Care Act. Around three in 10 Latinos are uninsured — more than any other ethnic group.
In the interim, the administration has said that Spanish-speaking consumers can call the bilingual ObamaCare hotline. . . .
