Final Public Charge Rule: Analysis and Potential Implications

On September 3 at 1:00 p.m. E.T., the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health and Value Strategies program will host a webinar on the public charge final rule, facilitated by experts at Manatt Health. On August 12, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a final version of its public charge rule, which will be published in the Federal Register later this week and will go into effect on October 15.  The public charge rule will change how DHS determines whether immigrants—when seeking admission to the U.S., an extension of their stay, or status change to become a legal permanent resident—are “likely at any time to become a public charge” (i.e., dependent on the government for financial support). The webinar will review the final rule, highlight changes from the proposed rule, and explore the rule’s potential impacts on consumers, states and providers. Speakers will highlight the key ways the proposed rule departs from current guidance, with a particular focus on the implications for Medicaid and other health-related public benefits.
