As an Undocumented Alien,
Can I Have Insurance?
Yes, it depends where in U.S. an undocumented alien lives. In some states, there is universal health insurance for everyone within its boundaries. For instance, in California, you may qualify for Medi-Cal coverage of emergency and pregnancy-related services if you meet all of the eligibility requirements but do not have a satisfactory immigration status.
In virtually all of the states, however, an undocumented alien who shows up at an Emergency Room receives medical treatment regardless of their immigration status.
