We are currently in a period of significant uncertainty regarding the future of health care access in the United States, leaving many people fearful that they could lose their health coverage at any second, and many others afraid to use health services.  Community clinics, as front line providers of health care, are likely to be faced with numerous questions from patients about how the recent election and future of the Affordable Care Act impact their health coverage.  This training will address best practices when counseling patients about their health care rights in the current environment and help identify additional resources and referrals. We will also discuss general aspects of current immigration law and consider what has changed and what has not changed under the new president and his administration.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to address questions about accessing health coverage in 2017, especially for patients who have concerns due to immigration status.
  • Discuss how to help patients separate fact from fiction regarding their health care rights in the current environment.
  • Acquire accurate and up to date information regarding current immigration law and changes in enforcement priorities from the new administration.
  • Learn how to empower individuals to be able to know and enforce their constitutional rights and their rights under the law.
  • Learn strategies for seeking out accurate resources, referrals and information regarding individual immigration status questions.
