My grandmother arrived to the U.S few months ago on IR5. She has since received her Green Card and SSN.
Before she arrives, we were told that she will be eligible to receive full healthcare benefits from the government as she is 84 years old and does not have income. After applying for AHCCCS (we live in Arizona) she was denied due to her Immigration Status and she was provided with Emergency AHCCCS only which covers life threatening emergencies.
I was wondering if anyone knows a way to get her a full cover health insurance to help her with the frequent doctors' visits as she has some chronic diseases. I am sure private health insurance will be insanely expensive due to her age and illness.
Any input will be helpful. Thanks in advance!
