The purpose of this study was to explore the factors associated with reasons the Hispanic population experiences delay in healthcare. This was completed by conducting a quantitative study in which secondary data obtained from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) was analyzed. The results found that the participants with Medicare coverage and adults ages 60-69 experience delay in healthcare. The study also found that delay in healthcare happens among the Hispanic population, but more specifically within the Mexican community. Language also plays an important role to the delay in healthcare. The findings may be helpful for people employed in Hispanic communities who provide education and awareness about preventing healthcare, such as healthcare providers, healthcare educators, healthcare, and social workers.
