This proposed rule will impact Green card applicants from Panama who are family members of US citizens and are applying for US Green cards based on family ties. This new rule indicates that visas to enter the US can be denied if the applicant is unable to provide proof of proper US immigrant health insurance. While details of the new immigrant insurance requirements are still to be announced, the Green card holder insurance plans that we offer work well as short term health insurance for Green card applicants which they can use till they are eligible for domestic US insurance plans or health insurance through an employer.
