What are my options if I am an immigrant or come from a mixed-status family?

Lawfully present immigrants are eligible to enroll in coverage through HealthCare.gov.  Certain immigrants with “qualified” status may be eligible for Medicaid and CHIP in New Jersey as well.

Members of “mixed-status” families, or families whose members have different immigration and citizenship statuses, are often eligible for different kinds of health coverage, and some members of mixed-status families may not be eligible for certain coverage at all.

However, members of mixed-status families who are eligible for various health insurance options, including through HealthCare.gov, Medicaid, and CHIP, can apply and are not required to provide information about the immigration or citizenship status of any family member who is not applying for coverage.
