Health Insurance for Immigrants – Why

Health Insurance for Immigrants is needed to protect immigrants from high medical bills. These affordable plans can cover expenses from doctor’s visits, emergency treatment, hospitalization expenses, maternity, prescription drugs etc.

The fixed benefits health insurance for immigrants offers basic coverage at an inexpensive price. The comprehensive immigrant medical insurance provides a range of coverage that exceeds the fixed benefits plans. Lloyds, AIG, and Nationwide are a few examples of insurance carrier that underwrite our immigrant insurance plans. You can compare in-depth information about multiple immigrant insurance plans and then choose a plan that will meet your specific needs.

Insurance for immigrants may be purchased over the phone, online, by mail, or by fax. Payment of the premium may be made by money order, check, credit card, or wire transfer.

A few US consulates and embassies located in foreign countries demand proof of adequate immigrant health insurance coverage. In such cases it is best to apply online through our website because the documents confirming insurance coverage would be made available (via email or online download) immediately after purchase.

Immigrant Medical Insurance – Eligibility

Immigrant Insurance is for non-United States citizens immigrating to the US or those in the US on long term work assignments (H1B & H4 visa holders). These plans offer options to purchase for as short as 1 month to as long as 5 years. All immigrant plans are renewable; so one could purchase in monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annual increments. Some immigrant health insurance plans require you to be enrolled on the plans within 24 months of arrival in the United States.

Seniors or elderly (65 years and above) immigrating to the US will not be eligible for Medicare (healthcare provided to seniors by US Govt.) till they become US citizens. It typically takes 5 years for new immigrants to become eligible for US citizenship. Our immigrant insurance plans can serve as a bridge insurance plan covering the sudden sickness/injury of new immigrants till they move on to US Medicare insurance.

One can compare the premiums and features of both type of plans by completing the health insurance for immigrants quote form (at the top of this page) and clicking the ‘Get Quote’ button.
