Optional Practical Training (OPT) Insurance Plan Forum

questionHi,
I just started my optional practical training (OPT) on my F1 visa here in the US. I have lost my university's coverage and was hoping to get insurance until July 1. What would be my best options?

questionHi,
I am an Iranian citizen and I have just graduated and am working with an opt visa in California. All of the insurance companies I've searched have banned Iranian citizens because of sanctions against my country. Do you know if there are any plans that do not discriminate based on nationality?
Thank you for your help.
Best,
Kiana

questionDear Kiana,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your US visitor health insurance needs! This is one of the few plans which will allow purchase by Iranian citizens. You should put your address in Iran as your "home country" address; but you can use a US billing address if you choose or need to.
It also has an excellent sports rider option that covers wide variety of adventure sports including collegiate sports, mountain climbing, skiing etc.

questionHi,
I am on F1/ OPT visa in the US, living in Massachusetts. I need to buy health insurance coverage until my employer's insurance start date (so buying insurance coverage between February 4 and April 1 2014). Can you please let me know which plan meets the MCC requirements of the state and whether or not you provide the 1099HC form for tax filing?
Thanks!
Nancy

questionDear Nancy,
You can purchase the Atlas America Insurance plan offered by HCCMIS. They will provide the 1099 as you require.
You can get all information about Atlas insurance, see the brochure, search the PPO network and buy the policy at Atlas America Insurance.
This policy is very popular with international travelers and has many excellent features. In particular, their coverage of "acute onset" of pre-existing conditions up to $100,000 or the maximum of the plan (whichever is smaller) for medical expenses and an additional $25,000 for emergency medical evacuation can put your mind at ease.
