MDedge - Trump: No health insurance, no U.S. entry

Health insurance or the ability to pay for care soon will be a requirement for immigrants seeking U.S. visas, under a proclamation from President Trump.

Effective Nov. 3, 2019, visa applicants must demonstrate to immigration authorities that they can obtain coverage by an approved health insurer within 30 days of entering the United States or show evidence they possess the financial resources to pay for foreseeable medical costs. Approved coverage includes, but is not limited to, an employer-sponsored plan, an unsubsidized health plan offered in the individual market, a family member’s plan, or a visitor health insurance plan that provides coverage for at least 364 days, according to the proclamation.
