The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) passed last year will significantly increase the number of people on insurance plans.  Some insurance industry analysts estimate that there will be an additional 44 million enrollees, many of whom do not speak English as their first language.

The PPACA requires that health plan details as well as benefit, prescription, and treatment information be “culturally and linguistically appropriate.” In other words, the information must be translated into languages other than English by July 1, 2011.

Are insurance providers prepared to meet this deadline?
