UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME GETTING HEALTHCARE
Zero access to healthcare
Without a Social Security Number, undocumented immigrants can't be enrolled in any existing healthcare programs or private insurances.
No pre-negotiated tariffs
Doctors are expensive, and more if one can't benefit from private insurance pre-negotiated tariffs.
With no bank accounts or credit cards, the existing telehealth solutions payable by credit card are out of reach.
Privacy is a big concern. In the past, ICE has obtained patients' personal information from doctor’s offices.
Language can be a huge barrier when dealing with busy receptionists or explaining complicated symptoms to a busy doctor.
Most of undocumented immigrants can't afford the half a day off from their precarious jobs that it takes to physically visit a doctor.

Immicare is a collective of common people who came together for one purpose: to provide undocumented immigrants in America with easy access to high-quality telehealth and advice on-demand. A diverse team of legal immigrants from across the world, we too have experienced the struggle that comes with accessing healthcare in a country we call home.
We believe that health is not only a human right, but the basis for happiness and integration into American society. That’s why we have created a digital platform that provides undocumented immigrants with access to affordable Spanish-speaking doctors anytime, anywhere.
Our Telehealth solution would allow the patients to receive medical treatment without being beholden to an office schedule that does not fit the patient’s needs.
Percy Calderon is Immi Care's founder. Having been born in Peru before relocating to France, travelled to over 40 countries, studied in Los Angeles and finally settling in New York, Percy considers himself a professional immigrant.
Bringing a strong academic background that includes Master degrees in Economics, Business Administration, and in Banking and Trading, Percy launched his professional career helping global businesses to assess risk and ensure regulatory compliance, working in Paris and London.
Yet, something didn’t quite fit. Having always felt a passion for helping others, he combined his business acumen and digital aptitude with his drive to create a better life for others. The result was Doctor Direct, a company he started to provide telemedicine to those who struggled with physically accessing healthcare. Simultaneously, Percy set up Veterinarian Online, a teleconsultation solution for vets and pets. Both projects proved rewarding, but ultimately led Percy Calderon to a greater goal in his personal search for purpose.
Having travelled to places such as Patagonia, Alaska, Nepal, India, and Tanzania, and having lived with immigrants in LA and New York, Percy was touched by the stories of individuals who struggled to get the appropriate healthcare they needed due to the legal frameworks around immigration. Inspired by the injustice he witnessed, Percy began building a network of likeminded people and healthcare practitioners in order to create a solution that would help tackle this problem.
