Affordable coverage options are available in the Health Insurance Marketplace for immigrant families. If you’ve
recently moved to the United States and had a change in your immigration status, here are some things you
should know about Marketplace coverage:
Many immigrant families are of “mixed status,” with members having different immigration and citizenship statuses. Mixed status families can apply for a tax credit or lower out-of-pocket costs for private insurance for their dependent family members who are eligible for coverage in the Marketplace or for Medicaid and CHIP coverage. Family members who aren't applying for health coverage for themselves won't be asked if they have eligible immigration status.
Federal and state Marketplaces, and state Medicaid and CHIP agencies can’t require you to provide information about the citizenship or immigration status of any family or household members who aren’t applying for coverage.
States can’t deny you benefits because a family or household member who isn't applying hasn’t provided his or her citizenship or immigration status.
Information that you provide to the Marketplace won’t be used for immigration enforcement purposes.
