In this first of the Center’s 2015 Health Policy Seminar Series, Nadereh Pourat, the Center’s director of research, will discuss the findings of a study released March 26 on the health insurance status and characteristics (including age, income level and work status) of eligible California immigrants.
Pourat will also examine the potential effect on immigrants’ income and access to health insurance as well as the impact on Medi-Cal.

In case you missed it: The Los Angeles Times reported on the joint study in a recent article entitled “Medi-Cal rolls could swell under Obama’s deportation relief plan” (March 26, 2015). The study’s co-author, Nadereh Pourat, noted in the story that although many undocumented could qualify for coverage, fewer will sign up than are eligible, in part due to ongoing fears of deportation.
