Public Health Insurance Expansion for Immigrant Children and Interstate Migration of Low-Income Immigrants []


By Vasil I. Yasenov, Duncan Lawrence, Fernando S. Mendoza, et al., JAMA Pediatrics, November 18, 2019

Key Points
Question Is state-level expansion of public health insurance coverage to non–US-born children and pregnant women associated with increased in-migration of eligible immigrant families from other states?

Findings In this difference-in-differences analysis of data on 208 060 immigrants from the American Community Survey from 2000 through 2016, no association was found between in-migration rates among this population and expansion of public health insurance coverage.

Meaning These findings suggest that states expanding health care benefits for immigrant children and pregnant women may be unlikely to experience changes in in-migration among eligible non–US-born adults from other states.
