Will the US deny future F1 visas​ to applicants who receive medicaid or premium credit?

I've asked the Student and Exchange Visitor Program at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement the same question and they say "SEVP does not regulate any part of the Affordable Care Act. We cannot provide guidance regarding your query."

I contacted the travel.state.gov but I was directed to contact a US embassy.

The US embassy I am supposed to contact does not take general inquiry.

So here is my question.

I have some concerns about the Affordable Care Act and its relationship with my visa status.

I am lawfully present in the US with the following specifications.
* F1 STEM OPT (with EAD card)
* self-employed (good standing)
* I will leave the US at the end of next year.
* In addition, I have low income at this time (do not exceed 100% of the FPL).

I want to buy health insurance through New York State marketplace.
Will I receive medicaid?
If not, will I receive premium credit?
I will leave the US next year.
When I apply F1 visa again (I might come back for another degree), will I be denied because of receiving medicaid or premium credit?

If you can find something official, for example a government webpage, document, or even email, that would be more accountable.
Or some words from some very accountable lawyer citing cases and laws would be awesome too.

Best sources I found are listed as follows.

I presume most on OPT have Insurance through there job.

Usually you would not be eligible for Medicaid. However NY may be different.

Yes,

if you apply for (you wouldn't even get it, as you would not be able to meet the very stringuent document requirements) any means-tested benefit, even health care benefits under the ACA, which are subsided by US taxpayer money, you won't get another visa again. It would pop up in the federal database that the consulates access.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
