The Immigrant’s Limbo

The Immigrant’s LimboLiving in the United States when you aren’t a US citizen can be hard at times, especially when it comes to health care. Depending on the state you live in, you or your loved ones might be limited to just a few insurance options, and you might even be forced to wait for years to qualify for a health plan. Meanwhile, diseases don’t wait patiently for you to get full coverage before striking, and accidents can happen at any time.

President Obama has said time and time again that the Affordable Care Act does not provide health insurance to undocumented immigrants, nor can they purchase health insurance through state or federal exchanges. Whether you consider that fair or not, such immigrants still have to visit the emergency room from time to time, and without insurance they may be required to pay some thousands of dollars on procedures which would cost a fully insured patient only a few hundred.

If you’re a migrant worker or simply a tourist who has an unfortunate accident while you’re in the United States, your situation may be even worse. Every country’s health care system is a little different, some more so than others, and while our nation’s ability to treat diseases and injuries is top notch, you may be astonished by the size of the bill you receive after being treated. While some visitors’ home nations might gladly pay for their citizens’ treatment and medication, not everyone is so lucky.
