UPDATED Healthcare Resources Following Refugee Medical Assistance Expansion

In March, the Office of Refugee Resettlement announced that the eligibility period for Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) and Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA) would increase to 12 months. In response, CORE updated its Healthcare in the United States suite, which includes a fact sheet, video, and podcast. You can find this resource, along other health-related suites on hygiene and COVID-19 on the Settle In website.  

Looking for activities to teach about health in the U.S. to newcomers? Visit CORE’s Health Activity Bank, which includes a new activity on teaching about different types of medical specialists. This activity helps participants to understand the topic of health insurance and the different types of medical specialists and referral systems. The activity is accompanied by a worksheet and talking points.
