Health Insurance

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My name is Sean. I am planing to get married, however, I am not quire sure how to tackle my health insurance. Right now, I am F1 visa holder, and I am planing to get married in August. The semester stars at the end of August and I not want to go to school in the fall. My fiancee is under his parents insurance and he can get health insurance form his work, but at the beginning of the year. On the other hand I can't buy International Health insurance through school, because I won't be in school. What should I do?

It's your problem basically. Either purchase an insurance from somebody (costly) or wait until you become a resident and then go for your state exchange and do the same. Either way, you'll have to spend money - welcome to US healthcare - Sean aka rafcio.

I would buy a catastrophic policy " just incase" then wait it out until august to be added to your spouses group policy from their work.

Unless you have a lot of medical needs this could be an option and you're covered for something catastrophic.
