Can I add my foreign parents to my health insurance? Immigrants can enroll in individual health plans during the open enrollment period (November 1 to January 15, in most states), just like any other lawfully present U.S. resident. Lawfully present immigrants – including those in the U.S. temporarily on work or student visas – are eligible for premium subsidies.
Can my immigrant parents get Medicare? New immigrants are not eligible for Medicare regardless of their age. Once immigrants meet the residency requirements, eligibility and enrollment works the same as it does for others.
Can recent immigrants to the United States get health coverage if they’re over 65? Health history is no longer used to determine eligibility or premiums in the individual market, and private carriers now offer coverage to people who are 65 or older, as long as they are not enrolled in Medicare.
