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.
