Under New Rule, DACA Recipients Can Sign Up for ACA Marketplaces in 2025

Under the Biden administration’s new regulations — which will allow Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients to receive federal health care coverage — more than 100,000 uninsured DACA recipients are expected to enroll in Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace plans next year, according to CMS.

As of Dec. 31, 2022, there were 580,000 active DACA recipients and almost 28% of them resided in California. A KFF survey showed that most people who were likely eligible for DACA lived in a family with at least one full-time worker and over half of them worked full time themselves. However, they were much less likely than U.S.-born individuals in their age group to receive health care coverage.
