Insurance for Dependent Visa Holders Such as H4 Visa Family Members
U.S. Visa holders who are dependents of the primary visa holders, may qualify for visitors insurance policies. It depends on if they're making a short visit to the U.S. or entering the country for the first time.
However if they plan to stay in the US on a long-term basis, they should consider enrolling into a standard, long-term, domestic health insurance policy. They can either add themselves onto the primary insurance holder's insurance policy OR buy a separate individual and family health insurance policy from a private insurer.
If the primary insurance holder has health benefits through an employer, he/she should find out how to add dependents to the policy. Depending on the employer's policies, you may be responsible for your family member's insurance premium.
