If you are not a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or an alien lawfully present in the U.S., you are not eligible to buy a plan on the health insurance marketplace. However, you can shop for health insurance outside of the Marketplace in the non-group market. Insurers outside of the marketplace are prohibited from turning you down based on your health status or your immigration status and must follow generally the same rules as plans in the marketplace. To obtain coverage, contact a state-licensed health insurance company or a licensed agent or broker. Your state Department of Insurance can help you find one.
