Hispanic seniors are one of the fastest-growing population groups in the U.S., and hundreds of thousands are aging-in to Medicare every year. This report explores insights around demographics, role of the family, trust in the healthcare system, and the unique challenges this population faces. By 2020, Hispanic seniors are expected to make up nine percent of the U.S. population 65 and older.
