Healthcare Marketplace after AOS

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All!


I was under the impression that once we filed for AOS we became eligible to enroll in plans on the Healthcare Marketplace.


As with standard procedure, the Healthcare Marketplace asked me to upload immigration documents. I did so, uploading my AOS NOA1, but I received a notice today which said that "you submitted a document that didn't include the allowable duration of your stay." Now, of course, as you all know.. the AOS NOA1 doesn't specify your definitive allowed duration of stay.. it's just until its processed... How do I explain this? I've tried calling them but don't seem to be getting anywhere as the Adjustment of Status is obviously a very rare occurrence for the Healthcare telephone support centre.


In addition, https://www.healthcare.gov/immigrants/immigration-status/ clearly states:



Applicants for any of these statuses qualify to use the Marketplace:

  • Adjustment to LPR Status


and then under: https://www.healthcare.gov/immigrants/documentation/



You may need to have one or more of the following documents when you apply for and enroll in Marketplace coverage:

  • Notice of Action (I-797)


I'm hoping someone has been in a similar situation and was able to resolve it? Or if anyone had any advice in general?


Thanks all!

hi! I encountered the same problem with the marketplace. 

I received a phone call from the marketplace in December and the lady on the phone asked me to submit the copy of my EAD card before Feb. 9th. When I asked her if I don't receive my card by then, what I should do. She said then I have to call to let them know at the beginning of Feb. It is not helpful at all since I have no idea how they would determine my eligibility and/or they would extend the deadline for submitting my documents. 

I am anxiously waiting for me card every single day...
