Title: Impacts of Health Insurance Acquisition for Immigrants

Abstract: "Legislation in the 1990s restricted immigrant access to benefits from the social safety net.  Later legislation, in 2009, allowed states to elect into expanded access to Medicaid and CHIP for immigrants.  I use this variation to examine the impacts of health insurance acquisition for immigrants.  Preliminary descriptive evidence indicates substantial heterogeneity in uptake.  This heterogeneity underlies average increased uptake associated with expanded eligibility."
