Health Reform Beyond the Basics report on Marketplace enrollment for families that include immigrants

Non-U.S. citizens in Texas who are lawfully present may enroll in marketplace coverage, and can qualify for premium subsidies and lower out-of-pocket costs from 0-400% of the federal poverty income guidelines.

Lawfully-present non-citizen children (under age 19) can participate in Texas Medicaid and CHIP on the same terms as U.S. citizen children. But, Texas is one of just 6 states that do not cover lawfully-present non-citizen adults in Medicaid.
