Patients who don't speak English have been enrolled by marketers who speak only Ms McElroy said Many patients are wrongly told they don't have to change or that they must sign up with an HMO to keep their benefits.

From last July through the state's HMO hotline received 106 com- plaints from patients about marketing.
