  • Public charge - health insurance

    I am a US citizen and plan to apply for my husband's AOS. I am pregnant and recently lost my job. If I take MassHealth insurance (Federal and State funded Medicaid health insurance) while I am pregnant, will it come under public charge. The Massachusetts government website states that there are some exceptions when the MassHealth insurance will not be considered a public charge, one exception is pregnancy.
    My husband's has his own private health insurance. Thanks

    The public charge does not apply to U.S. citizens.

        Please review this slide set - I found it useful. There are many "safe" benefits.

        If link is removed - then google "MLRI Public Charge Representing Adjustment of Status Applicants"

        Also you can call this organization - they have been helpful:

          Legal advice on Youtube should be viewed as highly suspect unless or until you can verify through a more credible source.
