Ensure access to affordable healthcare for new Americans

Immigrant communities have particularly poor access to health coverage and services. Yet keeping our workforce healthy and productive is important for the businesses that drive our economy, and providing preventive care up front will save taxpayers the expense of avoidable emergency room visits and hospital stays later on. O’Malley has already proposed giving immigrants granted deferred action, including DACA recipients, access to Medicaid and to the health insurance exchanges created by the ACA. In addition, he would eliminate waiting periods for Medicaid coverage for New Americans, and support local efforts to provide primary care coverage to undocumented families.
