Obamacare loophole allows low-wage foreigners to enroll, but not citizens

FEBRUARY 5, 2015 AT 10:24 AM



In the many states where Medicaid has not been expanded, many low wage, part-time, or unemployed workers are finding that they do not earn enough ($11,670 for a single person) to qualify for Obamacare subsidies, but cannot get Medicaid under their state’s traditional requirements, which often require that a person have no assets.

However, there is a loophole in the Obamacare law that exempts people from the minimum income requirement provided that the person is a NON-U.S. CITIZEN, or has a non-U.S. citizen in their household. Such people would pay less that $20 per month (and potentially nothing) and receive high quality insurance (better than a Platinum plan). This is not intended for illegal aliens, as the Obamacare website requires non-U.S. citizens provide their visa data.
