ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the health coverage for immigrants in the United States. Health coverage for immigrants remains a pressing policy challenge. Although most immigrants are in working families, many work in jobs that do not offer health insurance. Federal law has restricted Medicaid and State Child Health Insurance Plan eligibility for many immigrants since 1996. As a result of limited private and public coverage, immigrants have high uninsured rates and, as such, experience difficulties accessing care. These disparities in coverage are not explained by differences in work effort.
