US immigrant insurance mandatory for prospective Green card applicants
The Donald Trump administration announced in October 2019 that the US immigration authorities will require on proof of good US immigrant health insurance
coverage without which potential Green card applicants to the US will be denied visas. This proclamation however has come under legal scrutiny with different cases filed against this Trump administration initiative. The US government states that new immigrants without proper health insurance in the US are becoming a burden to the US hospitals and US medical system, and finally adding the cost of their healthcare to the US taxpayers.
Once this policy comes into effect, prospective new Green card holders would be asked for proof of immigrant health insurance. The visa to enter the US can be denied if the consular office is not satisfied by the provided proof of health insurance in the US.
