UCLA's Latino Policy and Politics Initiative (LPPI) will investigate the role of parental legal status (documented versus undocumented) in explaining the chilling effects of new public charge regulations among children. This will allow LPPI to identify more precisely the differential impact of the proposed new regulations in health outcomes, access to, and use of health care. The project seeks to answer the following: 1) What number of children are likely to disenroll from public insurance using scenarios drawn from 2018 research on immigrants and their likelihood of avoiding public benefits in response to “public charge” determinations? 2) What number of children are likely to forgo medical needs, emergency room visits, and/or preventive care visits as a result of disenrollment from public health insurance in response to “public charge” policy changes?
