Hi all,

 

I'm in the process of going thorough the AoS via marriage so I'm already in the States; looking to listen to some experiences in getting an Health Insurance that can be considered a  positive factor by USCIS but less expensive than $400/month.

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

1) Insurance via your spouse's plan

2) Insurance via the exchange (see healthcare.gov)

3) Private insurance

 

Normally #1 is going to be the cheapest with any sort of actual coverage.

Thanks for your reply!

It seems My wife has a basic coverage , need to look into that, not sure if I can be added and/or if it will count as a positive factor by USCIS

(still really confused by how health insurance works in the US...)

Hey, I got myself a minimum coverage from Oscar and I pay $146 a month and that’s what we used for the i944 I think it should be fine :) 

I checked them out and I was seeing about $400 monthly. Did you call to get the above quote?

I Also checked out ***removed*** (subuy), gave them a call and was quoted almost $600 to be paid annually. I saw their advert on visa journey. i am yet to pay though

good stuff thanks, I had a look and... it seems the cheapest option is 500+/month under "Individuals&famillies"... can you tell me how you got to that "minimum coverage"?

 

thanks!

Mind if I ask how cheap? I applied through Marketplace and the cheapest plan they’re offering is $300... which is exorbitant for me since I’m not working (K1, waiting for AOS) and am generally healthy...

in NY I got it for free. I called them since the system couldnt verify my identity.

Then I got the health insurance contract and card via mail

Thank you for the reply, this is not seen as public charge being that it’s free? I’m about to call them
