Information for Immigrants

Immigrants without Legal Status

Non-U.S. citizens in Texas who are undocumented (do not have legal status) are excluded from Medicaid, CHIP, and the Marketplace. Their options for care are much more limited.

Most federally funded public health services and many (not all) city and county programs for the uninsured in Texas do allow undocumented residents to participate. See Getting Health Care Without Insurance for more information.
