DACA Immigrants Worries Include Health Insurance

if the program is indeed eliminated, as the Trump administration announced, young immigrants with DACA status who have been able to get health insurance are worried about what happens next. The prospect of losing coverage is especially alarming, for those with serious or chronic conditions. Luis Cruz, who is 25 and has had a kidney transplant, says, "I take 18 pills in the morning, and 10 to 11 at bedtime." The total cost of medication without insurance would be about $3,000 a month.
