I’m working on an H-2A visa. Am I eligible for coverage in the Marketplace?

Ver en Español

Yes. Lawfully-present immigrants – including “nonimmigrants” like H-2A workers and those on student visas – may purchase insurance in the Marketplace. Those who are low-income and otherwise eligible may also receive premium assistance and cost-sharing reductions to lower the cost of coverage in Marketplace plans.
