Moving Toward #Coverage4All:
Access to Healthcare for Immigrants in New York
Tuesday, April 19, 2016, 7:30pm — 9pm
Featuring Max W. Hadler, New York Immigration Coalition's Health Advocacy Specialist
Beth Israel’s Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium
Advocates have long held that an effective single-payer health care system must be truly universal and cover all, regardless of immigration status. Studies have shown that immigrants pay more for health care than they receive, supporting our public programs through their tax dollars even when they can’t access many programs themselves. Now immigrant communities in New York State are leading efforts to expand coverage to immigrants who are ineligible for federal subsidies and other assistance.
Join us to learn about the barriers immigrants face, the grassroots fight to expand access, and to discuss how this informs our movement to guarantee health care as a human right!
