How will an individual’s citizenship and immigration status be checked?

Only those individuals in a family who are applying for health insurance are required to provide citizenship and immigration status. Applicants also must provide a Social Security Number if they have one.  Information provided by applicants will not be used for immigration enforcement.

Citizenship and immigration status for those applying for health insurance will be checked electronically with several systems, including the Social Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, and SAVE (Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements).

If an individual’s status cannot be checked through an electronic match, the individual can give other documentation of his or her status.
