What is the best travel insurance for an H1B visa holder?

If you are looking for temporary health insurance for a foreign visa holder, you may buy travel medical insurance, such as Patriot America Plus. If you are looking for long-term insurance, you may want to consider getting a regular domestic health insurance plan, as visitors insurance does not meet Obamacare requirements. In the meantime, you can look at short-term health insurance policies to cover the gap before your domestic insurance goes into effect. For more information: Health Insurance for H1B Visa Holders
