A Resource for Health Care Providers and Coverage Enrollment Assisters Serving Immigrants and their Families

As a result of policy changes and anti-immigrant rhetoric coming from the Trump
administration, Coloradans who immigrated to the United States and their families are
experiencing heightened levels of fear and anxiety. Many fear that they or a family or
community member will be detained by federal immigration enforcement officers and
deported. Coloradans who are undocumented or who live with someone who is undocumented
are less likely to seek essential public services, health insurance and needed health care
services. Informed communication efforts that help immigrant individuals and their families
know their rights and feel safe applying for coverage and seeking care are critical. This fact
sheet provides information that health care providers and coverage assisters should know to
help immigrants and their families understand their rights and options when seeking coverage
and care.
