Documentary Addresses Gaps in Health Insurance Access for Undocumented Adults – October 18, 2019

California is the first state to expand healthcare access to low-income, undocumented residents under the age of 25. But what happens to those over that age?

Monday night at 9 KRCB TV 22 presents Coverage, a story about California activists fighting to expand healthcare access to undocumented adults. The film follows Emma, an undocumented caretaker who looks after an eldery woman but is not able to qualify for health insurance. KRCB’s Adia White talked with filmmaker Set Hernandez Rongkilyo about why he felt her story was important to share.
