(CNN) - Latinos seem to be shying away from signing up for Obamacare, and advocates believe it's for a few reasons.

They say many Latinos fear deportation and the inability to browse plan options in Spanish.

Many Latinos are also apparently skeptical if it's worth the money.

According to the Commonwealth Fund survey, only 19 percent have looked at health insurance exchanges.

Still, it is unknown how many are actually signing up because almost all state exchanges don't ask for race and ethnicity.
