Question on Insurance for Relatives of Citizens

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


Through the help of all associated with this forum my wife has been able to successfully and efficiently navigate the process from my Foreign Fiance to my American Citizen wife of 5+ years.  I want to first thank everyone who has offered content or given answers to questions along the way.  


Now, we are looking at the possibility of bringing over my mother-in-law, but we had some questions if anyone else has done so.  How are we able to secure insurance for her?  Ultimately, she will find work here and be able to provide this for herself, but from when she arrives, we will want to provide this for her until she's been able to get into the workforce.


She will be living with us, and at least at the very beginning not have her own income.  At that point when we apply for insurance for her (my work only offers for spouses and children), will she apply as a Dependent of us or will she apply under her own merits?


What will change with this once she begins to work?


Thanks for any help, including any links you can offer.  If I know where to look, I can investigate details myself.

She can get incoming immigrant insurance.  It's not Obamacare compliant but it offers catastrophic care should she need it, and it's far cheaper than the exchanges. Google Seven Corners.  


She can keep that insurance until she gets a job and is able to obtain Obamacare compliant coverage through her employer.
