Green Card holder who live outside the US for a long period
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also popularly known as Obamacare, it is mandatory for all US residents (including Green card holders) to have health insurance, failing which they will have to pay a fine which increases annually. This mandatory insurance is however waived for those who have lived more than 330 days outside the country in a year. In this situation, where Green card holders usually live outside the US, and are visiting the country, they can purchase many of our visitor insurance plans. International Medical Group's (IMG's) Patriot America
is an option if they have a permanent address outside the US. Alternatively, you can buy the Liaison Travel Elite Insurance
offered by Seven Corners or the Visit USA
plans offered by TravelInsure. The most affordable fixed benefits plan is the Inbound Immigrant
which can be renewed for up to Five years.
