ANSWER

If you are not a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or have lawfully present status in the U.S., you are not eligible to buy a plan on the health insurance marketplace. However, you can shop for individual health insurance outside of the marketplace. Insurers outside of the marketplace are prohibited from turning you down based on your health status or your immigration status and must generally follow the same rules as plans in the marketplace. To obtain coverage, contact a state-licensed health insurance company or a licensed agent or broker. Your state Department of Insurance can help you find one. (45 C.F.R. § 155.305).
