In immigration, public charge describes a person who might rely on the government for financial, housing, or food assistance, or for health care.

If the government decides that a person is a “public charge,” their application to enter the US, or to get a green card, may be denied.

Public charge does not apply to US citizens or individuals applying for:

  • Temporary Protected Status
  • U or T Visas
  • Asylum
  • Refugee Status
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status
  • Individuals renewing a green card or applying for citizenship.

Understanding OmniSalud

A new program that provides undocumented Coloradans and DACA recipients with a safe way to compare affordable health insurance plans and enroll on a secure online platform, Colorado Connect.

OmniSalud is only available in Colorado, through the Colorado Connect platform.

SilverEnhaced Savings is the financial assistance offered to folks on OmniSalud who qualify based on their household size and monthly or annual income.

Open enrollment starts November 1st and goes through January 15th each year. Your benefits will start the following year, depending on when you signed up. For example, if you sign up for insurance between November 1st, 2023 and December 15th, 2023 your benefits will start on January 1st, 2024. If you sign up for insurance on or after December 16th, 2023 your benefits will start on February 1st, 2024.

When you apply, you will need your name, address, and a clear idea about your monthly or annual income. You won’t be asked to provide verification of income.

No. When applying for this program, you will not be asked for your immigration status. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not consider this type of health insurance coverage and assistance when making public charge determinations.
