Immigration Reform May Add Millions to ObamaCare

Around 7 million


If all goes as planned, the Affordable Care Act will extend insurance coverage to 30 million Americans in the course of a decade. It will also leave 30 million Americans uninsured. One quarter of that population will be undocumented immigrants.

Non-citizens living in the United States have, for decades, had significantly lower rates of health insurance coverage. The Congressional Research Service estimates nearly half of non-citizen residents of the United States lack insurance coverage.
