In this virtual workshop
, experienced immigration attorneys and Health Benefits Counselors will share stories of immigrant families trying to connect to health care & coverage. Participants will review coverage eligibility rules--relevant for advocates and healthcare providers--for different immigrant or immigration situations.
Immigration Attorney Steven Simerlein, a Wisconsin native, now practicing in Nashville, TN, joins the conversation to share his experiences representing immigrants in hearings and dealing with public charge rules and issues. He’ll discuss how the current public charge rules are applied, and implications of the new proposed public charge rule.
Finally, we’ll review and discuss strategies to address the harmful, chilling effect of the proposed public charge rule with cultural empathy & competency in interviewing families while building trust.
