Immigrant Health and the Affordable Care Act

The wide-ranging Affordable Care Act has many provisions that touch on issues important to immigrants, both documented and undocumented. Many immigrants and their families rely on safety-net hospitals, along with community clinics, Medicaid and other programs if they don’t have insurance through work. How will the federal health care law play out? Will safety net hospitals get adequate funding to care for the people who remain uninsured? How will community health centers fare? What happens if states like Texas don’t expand Medicaid eligibility? Where will undocumented immigrants turn to for care? Understand the issues involved as the law moves into final implementation in 2014.
