medicaid is not considered as public assistance if this is for immigration. USCIS calls it "public charge" which currently includes mostly cash benefits like food stamps and not govt sponsored health plans. Trump admin is trying to include medicaid and housing benefits and CHIP benefits into that "public charge" category with that new proposed law. yes it a a government assistance program but as of today or for next 2 months it wont count against immigrants as "public charge"
