Health Connector Benefits and Public Charge

Some people who apply for a green card (lawful permanent residence) or a visa to enter the U.S. must pass a “public charge” test. The public charge test is used to decide if a person is likely to use certain government benefits in the future. Under new immigration rules that started on February 24, 2020, certain government health programs are now included with other circumstances that officials look at as part of the public charge test.

The new rule does not change whether or not you are eligible for MassHealth or insurance through the Massachusetts Health Connector. Learn what you need to know about the public charge test if you have health insurance or are thinking about applying through the Health Connector →
