Hi all!

I was wondering what you all have done about insurance when you go to the US, before you are married and can be on your husband's/wife's insurance?

As a non-immigrant, I can not have a visitor/travel insurance from Norway, and I doubt I can be on my fiance's insurance through his job, until we are married.

What have everyone else done about this?

I refuse to move to America without any sort of insurance, so I need to get this sorted before I move.

Thanks!

There are some short term insurance plans which will accept anyone legally in the country, but details vary from state to state. I know in Arkansas, BlueCrossBlueShield accepts you with a photocopy of the visa page in your passport, insurance is valid from the day your application is postmarked.

Thanks for the replies!

Of course I understand if we got married straight away I could be on his insurance, but that is not an option.

He is under BlueCross Blue Shield through his job. I am thinking of trying to get their short-term insurance for my first 2-3 months in the US. Anyone know of any other affordable, yet not bad/not trustworthy insurance companies?

Anyone with any info on this?

BlueCross BlueShield in Texas wont accept me. With my interview tomorrow, and HOPEFULLY moving about a week after, I'm in desperate need of help.

Try "Humana" - I believe they allow for individual plans and have some decent ones the last time I checked.

Hi, if you can't get anything else, you may want to purchase a travelers insurance policy via the internet from your homecountry, saying that you are traveling here. If anything catastrophic happens, it will at least cover flying you back to your home for treatment. You do not want to start off our life in the US with a huge medical bill, that will follow you everywhere and ruin your credit before you even start.

Be very careful if you decide to do this; the insurance may refuse to pay on the basis that you are not travelling, but immigrating.

Funny that this topic is here - I was just about to start a post on this, because I stumbled across this site - It offers a comparison of policies based on your home country and where you are immigrating to:
