We examined health insurance coverage among U.S. and Mexican/Central American (M/CA) born labor workers living in the U.S. Using data from the 2010–2015 National Health Interview Survey, we employed logistic regression models to examine health insurance coverage and covariates among U.S. and M/CA born labor workers. Prevalence ratios between U.S. and M/CA born workers were also obtained. U.S. born workers had double the prevalence of insurance coverage. Regarding private insurance coverage, U.S. born workers had a higher prevalence of coverage compared to their M/CA born counterparts. Among foreign born workers with U.S. citizenship, the odds of having insurance coverage was greater than that of noncitizens. Additionally, those who had lived in the U.S. for 10 or more years had higher odds of having health insurance coverage. Disparities in health care coverage exist between U.S. born and foreign born labor workers.
