Question: I sponsored my 84 years old mother when she got her green card a year ago. She is getting health coverage through Covered California, with a subsidy (as her annual income is around 35k). Can the government or state at some point ask me to repay that money? Is this a "means-tested public benefit"? Thanks
Answer: You will not be asked to repay your mother's benefits because you sponsored her green card application. Covered California (Affordable Care Act) premium assistance benefits are not considered means tested benefits.
