Get Healthy, California!


Health care is still unaffordable for millions of immigrants, and it is particularly difficult for undocumented families. For example, if you are a DACA recipient or an undocumented person, you: (1) are excluded from purchasing health coverage and receiving tax credits through the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare” and (2) cannot buy and are not mandated to have health insurance through California’s marketplace, Covered California.

To address the health needs of undocumented Californians, the Dream Resource Center‘s Healthy California program has been conducting research on the topic.

The team is proud to release its latest guide, Get Healthy, California!

The product of research by 2015’s Dream Summer Healthy California cohort, this comprehensive guide identifies clinics and hospitals that provide low-cost medical services and do not turn away undocumented Californians. Please help us get out the word! Share it with your networks.

And, in case you missed it, many DACA recipients in California can sign up for free or low-cost health coverage through California’s Medi-Cal program. Some low-income immigrants may also be eligible for restricted or emergency MediCal. Read Medi-Cal fact sheet.
