Government offers payment for immigrants’ care

Government offers payment for immigrants’ care: “

Forty-six million dollars will be available to Texas physicians, hospitals, and ambulance services this year to help cover the cost of emergency medical care for undocumented immigrants, Mexicans legally entering the U.S. on a 30-day temporary visa, and parolees released by Homeland Security.

The money is part of the $250 million Section 1011 program created by Congress when it passed the Medicare Modernization Act in 2003.

By the way, this is weird: The RSS for this post, and the actual post are different. The RSS feed says:

Government offers payment for immigrants’ care

Texas physicians, hospitals, and ambulance services who provide emergency care to undocumented immigrants are elgible for payments from the federal government to help offset the costs of treating them. There is $46 million available this year.

It’s TMA’s site, and they can do what they want, but it seems very labor intensive to do it this way.
