These days, finding affordable health care options is a struggle for everyone. But immigrants also face language barriers, programs restricted by immigration status, and the intimidating prospect of applying for a government program.
But there are basic health care rights that all immigrants in New York State have, and a number of insurance programs available to help low-income immigrants cover their health care costs.

In Both English and Spanish, it features a visual breakdown of programs that help immigrants keep their health care costs affordable, and lays out their health care rights.
