Information About the New Federal Public Charge Rule

Following a Supreme Court decision on January 27, 2020, the federal government has changed how your application for a green card or entry into the United States may become a public charge. The public charge rules are complicated and may impact your immigration status and applying for certain public benefits—even if you are denied.

The new rule does not change whether or not you are eligible for MassHealth or insurance through the Massachusetts Health Connector.

There are health benefits that are not taken into account in a public charge determination, including: emergency Medicaid (MassHealth Limited), MassHealth coverage for pregnant women or children under age 21, and Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC)—including ConnectorCare plans—through the Massachusetts Health Connector.
