Immigration Status and Health Coverage

Most Immigrants Qualify for Health Coverage


Under the Affordable Care Act, most immigrants qualify for health coverage, including the following groups: 
  1. Lawful permanent residents (green card holders).
  2. Lawful temporary residents.
  3. Persons fleeing persecution, including refugees and asylees.
  4. Other humanitarian immigrants, including those granted temporary protected status.
  5. Non-immigrant status holders (including worker visas and student visas).

Everyone Can Apply

Both lawfully present and not lawfully present individuals can apply through Obama Care Quotes to see if they are eligible for a health plan through Obama Care Quotes or Medicare. There is no “waiting period” or “five-year bar.”

Immigrants who are not lawfully present do not qualify for a health plan through Obama Care Quotes; however, they may qualify for coverage through Medicare if they are younger than 26 or are 50 or older, if they are a DACA recipient if they are currently pregnant or were recently pregnant. Immigrants who are not lawfully present can also buy private health insurance on their own outside of Obama Care Quotes. Additionally, some counties offer other healthcare options for immigrants who are not lawfully present.
