After you receive your social security number and identification card, you should consider getting a permanent domestic insurance policy like Blue Cross or Blue Shield. Temporary travel medical insurance does not comply with Obamacare (ACA) requirements and you may still be subject to a fine if you do not have a domestic policy. Additionally, regular domestic policies will cover you for pre-existing conditions, pregnancy, regular check-ups, and existing medication. Depending on which state you are a resident of, you can apply for regular domestic health insurance. Cost will depend on many factors. Contact your state's Department of Health and visit the following website for options for you: marketplace.cms.gov.
