Fiancé Visa(K-1) Health Insurance
A K-1 is a nonimmigrant visa that permits an expat of a U.S. Citizen to travel to the United States for marriage. The marriage must be done within 90 days of their admission to the country.
For individuals looking for health insurance for their expected spouse this could create a significant issue and could threaten their Visa status. I’ll explain further below.
As a newly arrived individual in the U.S. finding quality health insurance could be difficult. Most of quality carriers (Non-Obamacare) will require the person to be a resident of the U.S. for 6 months. Many carriers also ask that the person to be a lawful U.S. Citizen or permanent resident.
At E&M Global Insurance we seek permanent solutions to this issue. We believe an individual should have high quality PPO coverage from day one.
In addition, after speaking with many immigration attorneys having a health insurance plan already in place may help your chance by getting your visa more easily approved. The government is wary of individuals coming in and being a drain on the health care system. By having insurance, it shows them that no you are pro-active and this won’t be an issue.
