The Affordable Care Act and Immigration
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the Social Security Act (SSA) require that individuals seeking coverage under a qualified health plan offered on a Health Insurance Marketplace or through an insurance affordability program (i.e. Medicaid etc.) provide information regarding their immigration status and certain information about their household members to determine eligibility for such coverage.
However, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) does not use information about such individuals regarding health coverage as the basis for pursuing a civil immigration enforcement action against such individuals or members of their household.
