We offer a variety of great short-term insurance plans for H-1B visa holders. These plans are suitable options for the initial part of your stay in the U.S., as long as you are still considered a “non-resident” alien for tax purposes.
They also work well for the period you are waiting for coverage on your employer's plan or for the time before you can purchase an ACA-compliant plan during open enrollment on the Marketplace. Below are the short-term, non-ACA options we offer for H-1B visa holders.
Once an H-1B visa holder becomes a “resident alien” for tax purposes (generally 6–10 months after arrival in the U.S. or loss of student status), he or she then is eligible to enroll in a US based plan that is ACA compliant.Read our H-1B Health Insurance Requirements article for more information about appropriate insurance options for H-1B visa holders.
