Insurance Alternatives for Undocumented Residents

While the Affordable Care Act will do a great deal to help low- and middle-income Americans obtain health insurance, this help does not extend to the more than 11 million undocumented residents currently in the U.S.

Many of these undocumented residents live in cities and are served by private, non-profit urban safety-net hospitals.

In a new report, the Commonwealth Fund takes a closer look at these undocumented residents:  their health care needs and possible alternatives to help them gain access to care.  Find the report, Undocumented and Uninsured:  Barriers to Affordable Care for Immigrant Populations, on the Commonwealth Fund’s web siteSurgical masks.
