In the Q & A session, the question was asked if there were insurance options for undocumented individuals. For ADULTS, there is emergency insurance. That is, if someone were to go to the emergency room with a life threatening illness or injury, they cannot be refused care. Pregnant women are also covered.
For CHILDREN, there is insurance available through the KAISER CHILD HEALTH PROGRAM. This program is housed at the Multnomah Education Service District, but it serves Clackamas County as well. The contact name is:
