Linea Abierta - English Description - Show in Spanish show

Summary: Undocumented fear new health plans. Undocumented workers are afraid that as employers begin buying insurance for their employees under Obamacare’s new health insurance exchange, or directing their workers to buy insurance, their immigration status will be verified and their job will be at risk. Two experts on the new health care law address those fears, explain what’s in store for the undocumented in the law, and offer tips on available resources.
