There are over 2 million undocumented immigrants living in California and making significant contributions to our state. Yet, most of these residents cannot enroll in state-level public health care coverage due to federal laws. As a result, many California counties have taken steps to expand health care options for undocumented residents through local policies.
A workshop at Policy Insights 2016 will discuss ways counties have strengthened their health care safety nets for undocumented immigrants. This workshop also will explore possibilities to further expand coverage options for undocumented immigrants as well as to ensure that they have access to affordable coverage. Panelists for this session are:
- Ronald Coleman, Government Affairs Manager, California Immigrant Policy Center
- Shannon McConville, Research Associate, Public Policy Institute of California
- Farrah McDaid Ting, Health and Human Services Legislative Representative, California State Association of Counties
We hope you can join us at Policy Insights on March 9, 2016, at the Sacramento Convention Center. Our conference will feature a variety of other timely sessions on tax and budget policy, criminal justice, housing, education, and much more.
Early-bird registration ends Friday, February 19, so register today.
