Health Insurance Options for Mother

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends -

Lost my father last year and US Embassy in Delhi rejected my mother's traveler visa multiple times saying both son's are in USA. I had to file for her Green Card and expect it should be through the process soon. She is going to go through the Consular Process and is currently in India.  I need help to understand her healthcare options when in USA. She is 71 years old and mostly healthy. I am in Washington State and have sponsored her.

1-Is she eligible for Healthcare via Medicare and Medicaid ?

2- Can she buy healthcare through market place? If Yes, what could be cost range for such insurance ?

3- What are my options to ensure she is covered.

Appreciate any advise and guidance as I am getting ready to bring her to USA as soon as this coronavirus situation ends.

Look at



You will need to have her file Tax returns irrespective of her Income and show that she qualifies for the subsidies by showing that as Income. Your financial situation is immaterial. She gets Health Insurance on her own recognizance. She will not be eligible for Medicaid and Medicare as of now.
