Temporary Health Insurance in New York state?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm looking forward to my fiance's move to the states in May and we're trying to make sure she has health insurance the entire time she's here. I've been told by my health insurance and the NY state insurance marketplace that if I add her to my insurance after we're married, her insurance will be effective retroactively from the date we're married. However, there is a week and a half that she'll be here before we're married and we're trying to find temporary health insurance to cover that period of time.

Has anyone bought temporary insurance in NY state? I'm seeing information online that says those types of policies are illegal in NY state but then posts on here are saying that there's special insurance for immigrants. If anyone has used a specific company, and in New York State, all suggestions are appreciated! I'm hesitant to just go with something we find on Google and don't have many friends who have been through this process. Thanks!!
