Patricia Boozang, Alice Lam, Allison Orris, and Liz Dervan, Manatt Health

State Health and Value Strategies (SHVS) held a webinar on September 3, 2019 on the final public charge rule issued by the Department of Homeland Security. Technical experts at Manatt Health have authored for SHVS Public Charge Final Rule: Frequently Asked Questions which provides answers to questions—including a number of questions raised during the webinar—about whom the rule will impact, what benefits are implicated by the rule, and how the rule might be administered. The rule was to go into effect as of October 15, but multiple federal courts have issued nationwide preliminary injunctions temporarily blocking the Administration’s implementation of the rule.
