dc.description.abstractAs countries strive to provide universal health care for their entire population, one group of people who tend to be mostly neglected are undocumented migrants, mostly due to their legal status. The aim of this study is to examine access to healthcare by undocumented migrants in Singapore and South Korea. The study explored healthcare policy of both countries as these are important factors that influences whether undocumented migrants can be granted access to the health care or not. Access to health care by documented legal migrants have not been a problem as migrant workers can access the health care, but in the case of undocumented migrants, there has always been a challenge as some view denying undocumented migrants as a deterrent factor to prevent them from staying illegal. Human rights arguments are frequently cited as reasons why undocumented migrants needs to be granted healthcare.(Grit, Otter, and Spreij 2012) The findings of this study revealed that undocumented migrants were not allowed to access the national health insurance of Korea. However they could access health care in the second and third tiers. These are private hospitals and civil society level. In Singapore, undocumented migrants are also not allowed to access the National health insurance. Private hospitals and civil societies also do not grant access to undocumented migrant at least in principle. Further studies is needed to examine what actually happens in practice. In order to improve access to healthcare for undocumented migrants, both countries should be encouraged to ratify the International convention for the protection of the rights of migrant workers and their families. Singapore in particular has to do a lot of reform in the way labor is sourced and managed in the country. Due to time constraint, this study was limited to analyses based on principles and policies.;전 국민을 대상으로 보편적 건강보험을 실행하는 국가에서 불법이민자들은 법적인 지위로 인해 건강보험의 사각지대에 노출되기 쉽다. 본 연구의 목적은 한국과 싱가포르에서 불법이민자들의 건강보험 접근성을 분석하는 것이다. 이를 위해 본 연구에서는 두 국가를 대상으로, 불법이민자들의 건강보험 접근성에 중요한 영향을 미치는 건강보험 정책을 분석하였다. 합법적 이민자 자격을 가지는 이주노동자들의 경우 그 법적 지위 덕분에 건강보험 접근이 어렵지 않으나, 불법이민자들의 경우 불법이민자들이 불법적 지위에 머무르게 하는 것을 방지하는 억제 요인인 것을 부인하기 때문에 문제가 되어왔다불법이민자들이 건강보험의 적용을 받아야 하는 근거로써 인권적 측면의 주장은 빈번히 제기되었다. 본 연구의 분석 결과, 한국에서 불법이민자들은 국가가 제공하는 전국민 대상 의료보험에 접근할수 없지만 2층과 3층에 해당하는 민간 병원과 시민사회 수준의 의료서비스에는 접근할 수 있다. 한편 싱가포르의 경우 한국과 마찬가지로 불법이민자들은 국가의료보험에 접근할 수 없다. 그러나 한국과의 차이점은 싱가포르의 불법이민자들은 원칙적으로 민간 병원 및 시민 사회 수준의 의료서비스에도 접근할 수 없다는 점이다. 이에 대해 싱가포르 불법이민자들의 의료서비스 접근권과 이용이 실제로 어떻게 이루어지고 있는 지에 대한 후속 연구가 필요하다. 불법이민자들의 건강보험 접근성을 높이기 위해서는 한국과 싱가포르 모두 이주노동자와 그 가족들의 권리를 보호하는 국제협약의 비준이 필요하다. 특히 싱가포르의 경우, 국가가 이주노동자들의 노동력을 제공하고 관리하는 방법에 있어 많은 개혁이 필요할 것으로 사료된다. 본 연구는 시간적 제약으로 인해 이론적이고 정책적인 분석에 제한되었다는 한계점을 가진다.-
