I am on H1B in small business.Earlier i use ACA insurance but in 2019 my employer provide insurance by company through private insurance,paid by employer. My employer stop medical insurance for 2020,and advised to manage your medical insurance by yourself. It is ok to use Obamacare(ACA) insurance as paid by myself.i just wants to know it will treat as public charge and give hard time for my H1b Extensions??
Thanks in advance.
ACA is not classified as a public benefit. But, if you have private health insurance, then it is considered as a overall positive factor for the public charge consideration. As of now the rule is on hold, so you may use it, but when it becomes effective take private insurance. Check article : Public Charge H1B Impact, ACA
