QUESTION

Where can immigrants who cannot enroll in Medicaid or CHIP or get coverage through the marketplaces get health care or health coverage?

Individuals with no coverage | Navigating Health Insurance Marketplace Options
ANSWER

Hospitals are required to provide emergency care and treatment to all individuals regardless of immigration or insurance status, though afterwards they can bill for their services. In addition, individuals may get low-cost care at community health centers.

Individuals may purchase health coverage through an employer or a spouse’s employer or the individual insurance market outside of the marketplace. Some states and counties also offer health programs for immigrants. For more information, go to Resources, More Tools for Consumers.
