Are OPT visa holders eligible for visitors insurance?

As a student on an OPT visa, you may consider our Short Term Plans. These plans are available for up to three months but you can continue to repurchase the policies again after 3 months. That being said, it is important to note that these policies do not fulfill the Obama Care regulation requirements and if you are living in the US permanently or have been residing in the US for some time already, you should be eligible for domestic healthcare plans which are under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Domestic healthcare plans are offered by and also by your local Social Security Administration office. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at or 1-866-384-9104.
