  • Health insurance during AOS (Urgent)

    Hi,

    I have a pending I-485 application. Where can I purchase health insurance for my family (spouse and child) and myself without infringing public charge rule in Massachusetts?

    Use your state's health insurance marketplace to buy appropriate private health insurance. You can find your state's insurance marketplace by going to healthcare.gov and clicking "Get Coverage"

      I am adjusting status as well, same sex couple. Married to a USC. In the I-944 I said I don't have health insurance and that I will obtain coverage as soon as I am assigned a social security number, as that's a requirement for all health insurance companies.

        To add to catparade's answer, the ACA marketplace in Massachusetts is called Health Connector. They currently have a special enrollment period through July 23.

          That's not always true. For example, many H4 spouses of H1b workers don't have SSNs, but can be added to their spouse's employer health insurance. Answer 5 here from IRS says you can just advise a health coverage provider that you don't have an SSN or ITIN. And Healthcare.gov says you can leave SSN blank on its applications if you don't have one.
