medical expenditures on and by immigrant populations in the united states: a systematic review

a majority of americans think immigrants are at least partly responsible for the nation’s high health care costs. but that’s not true, a recent article demonstrated.

“immigrants’ expenditures for health care are much, much less than native borns’,” dr. wesley boyd, from harvard medical school, said. “what that means is they are subsidizing u.s. health care. our data are very clear that the more immigrants we have in any insurance pool, the healthier that insurance pool will be financially.”

what do you think? leave a reply below if you like.
