I would like to know about the experiences of anyone whose parents have immigrated to the US post retirement. I’m thinking about the feasibility of my parents someday moving to the US when they retire. Having never worked here, they won’t qualify for Medicare and would need to purchase their own insurance. I realize there a so many variables in our complicated system, but I am curious what these costs can be like if anyone doesn’t mind sharing. I’m guessing costs can vary by state as well since some have laws to keep costs (relatively) reasonable. Thank you

Check your states marketplace.   The biggest determining factor is age.

The experience of many family and friends there has been “you get what you pay for”. Plus, they have no family left near them, and adorable grandchildren south of the border 😊

Marketplace insurance in states with no expanded Medicaid can run $2500 per month for a mid level plan with a deductible around $10,000.  After 5 years they can buy into Medicare which would be less expensive ... around $700

per month right now.

I realize at their income level they would likely qualify for heath insurance subsidies,  but would using that before adjustment of status make them a “public charge”?
