Biden Revokes Trump Administration Requirement that New Immigrants Have Health Insurance

On May 14, President Biden rescinded a proclamation by former President Donald Trump from 2019 that required potential immigrants to the U.S. to demonstrate that they would purchase qualifying health coverage or have the financial means to pay for expected medical costs. However, because the Trump policy was on hold due to legal challenges, Biden’s move will not have much real-world effect on the immigrant health care landscape.
