Who is Eligible for Affordable Care Act?

Question: Who is eligible for Affordable Care Act?

Answer: To be eligible for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace, you:

  • Must reside in United States
  • Must be a US Citizen or have legal status (Green Card, Asylee, Refugee, etc.)
  • Not Incarcerated or Jailed
