The October 2019 Presidential Proclamation requiring incoming immigrants to have health insurance has been revoked by the White House.

The Executive Order (“EO”) signed by then President Donald Trump required incoming immigrants to demonstrate that they will have health insurance within 30 days of their arrival in the United States. Opponents of the EO filed a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) in federal court which was granted in November 2019 by Judge Michael Simon of the U.S. District Court of Oregon. In December 2020, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Judge Simon’s TRO declaring that the proclamation was within the president’s executive powers.

The revocation makes the October 2019 no longer an issue and new immigrants no longer need to prove they have or will obtain health insurance.
