I have a visitor's visa. Was pregnant on my previous visit. Had intentions to pay all medical bills. Each facility I contacted requested that I must have insurance or Medicaid. I didn't have any insurance. Went though Medicaid and provided them my correct details to check my eligibility. It was confirmed and I had my baby here.
On a visit yesterday with my baby, Immigration says it is unlawful to use Medicaid while on a visitor's Visa.
While applying for my Medicaid eligibility, I gave a copy of my Visa and states that I'm a visitor and I am not eligible to work in the US or apply for SSN. I qualified anyway for Pregnancy and Delivery care. All information I provided are true.
It was recorded that I must provide a proof of payment or proof from the hospital or Medicaid that I am not owing them.
I was given a limited stay for 4 weeks with the below indicators
No Adjustment ( What does NOS and AOS mean?)
If I obtain such document, how can I provide it to immigration?
My VISA will expire in April, I want to clear this before leaving The States and reapply for another VISA in my country.
Many thanks for your anticipated help.
I switched the practice area to immigration so you can obtain the best response possible.
this is general information and not providing specific legal advise nor is it creating an attorney/client privilege nor an attorney/client relationship.
The way to clear this is to reimburse medicaid. Medicaid is funded by the US taxpayer. The government is getting very tough on this type of situation and now requires the US taxpayer be reimbursed before you are eligible for any type of immigration benefit.
I have 33 years experience and practice immigration law only. My answer to your question is general in nature and not to be construed as legal advise or as establishing an attorney-client relationship. For additional discussion regarding your personal situation a scheduled consultation is required.
