A non-citizen victim of trafficking, torture, or other serious crimes and their derivative family members may be eligible for state funded medical assistance if they have applied for "T" Non-immigrant status, "U" Non-immigrant status, or Asylum status, or are preparing to file an application with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for such status.
"Derivative Family Member" means a person who is the spouse, child, parent, or sibling under age 18 of the principal victim who is eligible, or potentially eligible, for one of the above statuses. A spouse must have been married to the principal victim before the principal victim entered the United States.
