I wanted to know which are the rules for legal/permanent residents when applying for Medicaid.

Do they have the 5 year ban or not?

Will the individual need to be in the US for 5 years before they can apply for Medicaid?


As we understand it there is still a five year ban on Medicaid for newly legal residents. You may still have Marketplace options based on income if you have been a lawfully residing immigrant within the US for 5 years or less. State's have the option to cover children and pregnant women.

See NCLR.org and HHS.Gov for more info.
