My son is a US citizen and is applying to sponsor green cards for my husband and myself. We are 79 and 73 respectively. We don't have any income and will be supported by him. Will we qualify for cheap or free medical?
Thank you for your question.
Unfortunatley, new immigrants have a five year waiting period before they qualify for Medicare which is the affordable health insurance provided to senior citizens. During this waiting period, you can purchase private insurance. We have several options available for new immigrants to the US.
Given your age and recent immigrant status, the best policy available for you is called Green Cover. This policy is available for green card holders 60-95 years of age.
Insurance rates are regulated by law. You can't find the same insurance plan for a lower price anywhere else
