This interactive webinar, sponsored by the Immigrant & Refugee Health Alliance, is an opportunity to discuss two new avenues for undocumented immigrants to enroll in healthcare coverage in 2024. Learn about both programs’ current status and limitations, hear highlights from a recent landscape scan on immigrant health in Washington, and participate in smaller group discussions to contribute your feedback and expertise to inform the implementation process. This session is designed to support community health center staff in preparation for Open Enrollment and a changing coverage landscape in 2024, and beyond.
Audience limited to staff from community health centers: Suggested staff to attend include those with roles related to Outreach & Enrollment, Community Health Workers, and Health Equity.

Summarize the current status of coverage opportunities for undocumented immigrants available soon through WA Healthplanfinder.
Describe the findings of landscape scans conducted last fall by Community Health Network of Washington and Latino Community Fund.
Discuss approaches to prepare for these new coverage opportunities.
