Abstract

​To improve the coordination of long-term services and supports for dual-eligibles (those with both Medicare and Medicaid), California created Cal MediConnect (CMC), an Affordable Care Act-authorized managed care demonstration program. Beneficiaries were "passively enrolled" into CMC, meaning they were automatically enrolled unless they actively opted out. The aim of this study was to examine differences in factors influencing the enrollment decisions of U.S. born and immigrant dual-eligible beneficiaries. To explore differences in decision-making processes, we conducted in-depth interviews with dual-eligible consumers (39 native and 14 immigrant) in Los Angeles County. Interviews were analyzed using a constructivist grounded theory approach.

Immigrant participants experienced a heightened sense of vulnerability and disempowerment. They also faced greater challenges in accessing healthcare and eliciting healthcare information compared to U.S.-born participants. Understanding the diverse perspectives of dual-eligible immigrant healthcare decision-making has implications for health care reform strategies aimed at ameliorating disparities for vulnerable immigrant populations.
