Immigration and healthcare coverage enrollment 

The information you share when you enroll in healthcare coverage is collected and verified by the Medicaid agency and will only be used to determine eligibility, and will not be used for immigration enforcement purposes.

Enrollment in Health Insurance Programs is SAFE and is NOT penalized in the Public Charge Test. Long-term care institutionalization paid for by the government is the ONLY “health” benefit that is part of the public charge test. “Long-term care institutionalization” means care for an indefinite period of time such as nursing home care paid for by the government for mental or other health reasons. “Long-term care institutionalization” is not currently covered by HBIS and HBIA programs. Temporary rehabilitative or recuperative care (even if such rehabilitation or recuperation may last weeks or months) and short periods of rehabilitation do not constitute long-term care institutionalization and are therefore safe under the public charge test.

Inmigración y inscripción en cobertura de salud 

La información compartida para solicitar cobertura de salud NO SE UTILIZARÁ con fines de inmigración. 

Inscribirse en una cobertura de salud es SEGURO y no penaliza ni perjudica el caso de inmigración de una persona. La institucionalización a largo plazo pagada por el gobierno es el ÚNICO beneficio de “salud” que forma parte de la prueba de carga pública. Los cuidados temporales de rehabilitación o recuperación (aunque sean semanas o meses) no constituyen una institucionalización a largo plazo.
