All immigrants have a right to medical treatment in New York, and many low-income immigrants can enroll in some forms of public health insurance coverage, regardless of their immigration status. This training covers immigrants’ right to health care and sources of affordable care, provides an overview of immigrant eligibility for public health insurance programs in New York State, and addresses immigrant family concerns such as public charge, sponsor liability, sponsoring of family members, and repayment of benefits. The session is appropriate for health providers, immigrant advocates, facilitated enrollers, case managers, social workers, and immigration attorneys. Given the latest debates and interest in health care reform and universal coverage, this training gives good grounding on immigrants' current eligibility for public insurance and financial assistance, and opportunities for affordable care within today's health care context. The training will be conducted by Jenny Rejeske, Director of Health Advocacy for the NYIC. There is no CLE offered for this training.
