I am looking for medical insurance coverage as a J-2 Visa that should start on August 1st and that can be cancellable with no fees before the starting date (since I am living abroad and do not know yet if borders will open by that date).
The insurance policy should include:
- maternity coverage
- medical evacuation
- must pay up to $10,000 for the expenses of travel if, because of a serious illness or injury she must be sent home on the advice of a doctor
- medical benefits of at least $50,000 for each accident or illness (i.e., the maximum set cannot be lower than $50,000)
- at least 75% of covered medical expenses.
- maximum deductible is $500 per accident or illness
- waiting period for coverage of pre-existing conditions less than one year
- must provide at least $7,500 in benefits to send remains to home country for burial
- combinable with a state health insurance (Marketplace coverage, Medicaid, CHIP, for example)
