Healthcare for Undocumented Immigrants
According to a UC Berkeley report last year, as many as 1.5 million undocumented Californians are projected to stay uninsured by 2019. While many undocumented immigrants have health insurance through other means such as a job or through the private market, the report found most of these immigrants are uninsured. In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that could help undocumented immigrants in California obtain health insurance through the Covered California health insurance exchange, part of the Affordable Care Act. Despite this step, many undocumented immigrants who were too poor to qualify for the Covered California bracket would remain excluded. Theme: Unmet Needs for Underserved
