From regulations.gov, due to the lack of funding, the definition of who is eligible has been changed for those in Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, they will not be eligible, nor will they be able to receive tax credits. Though I guess they can still enroll for healthcare coverage, just not have pre-existing conditions covered. Oh, and due to lack of funds. Oh, wait, maybe they aren't eligible at all? oh wait, but maybe they can be under Medicaid and CHIP - Regulations.gov Confused yet? Seems to me they can be eligible, but not through the affordable care act. I guess they are living up to the exact words, but found away around it, even though I knew they already had when they actually stated illegal aliens would not be eligible as the alredy allow them under Medicaid & CHIP.
