Health insurance help and advise

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know there is a ton of topic regarding the health insurance but my spouse and i are overly confused about what can we do and what we can't do that will affect our AOS approval. The marketplace is a place where they give you a premuim tax credit and either they give you the credit each month or they give you the premuim credit during tax time. My question is if my spouse the US citizen is getting a tax credit each year will we be denied a green card ? And if it will not affect my spouse getting the green card is it advisible to add my spouse to my insurance through the marketplace? I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Getting insurance through the marketplace will not cause a visa denial.   Adding the adjustment of status applicant (new alien spouse) to a marketplace policy is ABSOLUTELY ALLOWED.

The marketplace is based on income. If the income is over a certain threshold, most of us receive no subsidy (tax credit) at all. Of course the insurance will be more expensive but that's obvious.

Thank you but, if my spouse receives a subsidy  (tax premium credit) at tax time and i am on her insurance as a joint insurance is that considered a public charge and denial of AOS application /green card?
