Health Expenditure on Illegal Immigrants

Washington- A study conducted by U.S. researchers in North Carolina sought to tabulate expenditures related to health care on illegal immigrants//. The analysis revealed that most of the medical expenditure was related to childbirth and pregnancy related complications.

The study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is opportune as it raises concern about the escalating healthcare costs in the United States. It also speaks of the large number of people who do not have a health insurance coupled with the burning issue of illegal immigrants.

States where there is a flood of illegal immigrants like North Carolina are caught amid escalating Medicaid costs. The study also revealed that critical Medicaid costs amounted to less than 1 percent of North Carolina's Medicaid budget.

Dr. Annette DuBard of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill said,' This challenges a fairly common public perception that somehow immigrants are placing a very large burden on the Medicaid budget. It is not that we are spending so much through Medicaid on health care for immigrants. It's that we are spending it at the wrong end of care. '

Researchers led by DuBard conducted the study to understand the government expenditure on medical aid for illegal immigrants. The researchers are of the opinion that money could be judiciously spent to be able to afford quality preventive care.

The study looked into the expenditure on emergency spending in North Carolina from 2001 to 2004 under the category Medicaid for fresh immigrants. The analysis revealed that more than 48,000 people availed medical care costing more than $185 million . Nearly 91 percent of the hospitalizations were due to childbirth and pregnancy-associated complications.
