Requirements For Health Insurance. Do I Have To Be A Permanent Residence

Living in singapore for a permanent residence.?

nicely that fairly does count number upon your life-style. For Australia, you kinda get ill of issues there after awhile, and in case you opt to stay there for a lengthy time period, i'd fairly frankly recommend adversarial to it. yet, operating over there's a excitement, as operating in Singapore purely provides you rigidity and unnecessary rigidity.yet Singapore lacks no leisure and procuring shops, and could really be the position for lengthy time period residing. sturdy success [:

NYC resident to buy health insurance in Pennsylvania (2nd residence)?

The problem with being less than totally honest in signing up for insurance is that one of two things happens:

a) You pay for the insurance. You do not need any health care. They keep the money.
b) You pay for the insurance. You need health care. They realize that you do not tell them the whole truth. They rescind (cancel, retroactively) the policy and refuse to pay for the health care.

In other words, it is the worst of both worlds. You pay money even if you need no health care, and you receive no health care from them, even if you need it.

Why don't I qualify for full medicaid when am a permanent resident and my husband is a U.S citizen ........?

Because Medicaid is a federal means-tested public benefit, and if you have been a permanent resident for less than 10 years then you are not eligible to avail of any of these means-tested public benefits. Did you get your permanent residence based on your marriage? If so, do you remember form I-864, the Affidavit of Support that your husband signed? That form clearly states that your sponsor is financially liable for you and that you do not qualify to avail any of the means-tested benefits. If you do, then the government will sue your sponsor for the costs. One of the conditions of your green card was that you will not become a public charge - that is what you are trying to do right now. If you read and understood the form then you wouldn't be asking this question.

I go to marshall university in wv my permanent residenc is WV but i rent in OH do i have to register car in OH

I would think you should be fine. You might want to check, though, with the DMV in Ohio and see what they say. Always good to check to be sure. Active military is exempt from having to do that (they are allowed to keep their license & registration from their home state). Would think out of state students have that same clause as well, but be sure.

Canada car insurance valid if moving to Washington state?

You are skipping a lot of steps here.

First, your insurance in Canada ends the movement you fail to maintain a residence inside that province. Each also limits the number of days per year the vehicle may leave the province and most require special insurance to even visit the United States -- typically $2M to $4M in liability.

Second, in order to insure a vehicle in Washington State, you must register the vehicle in the state. You may not transfer registration from a Canadian province to a US state without importing the vehicle into the United States. This is a time consuming and expensive process of duties, inspections, environmental fees, title searches, etc. Most sane people would sell their vehicle in Canada and buy another in the United States.

Third, once you have a vehicle registered in Washington State, you may not insure the vehicle there unless you have a Washington State driver's license. Washington State only accept transfers from other US States and British Columbia. If you have another provincial license, you need to take a driving test. You must also provide a US social insurance number.

Forth, once you have a vehicle registered in Washington State and a Washington State driver's license... then you may purchase insurance on the vehicle in Washington.

Health insurance for pre-existing conditions?

Like many have said, it all depends on the current status of your condition. If you had the surgery as a child, periodically get checkups to ensure continued good health, and nothing has been a problem....then it is possible you are a good candidate for an individual policy.
If you apply and are accepted, there are 3 possibilities that can occur:
1. They issue with no stipulations.
2. They issue but do not cover anything in relation to your condiation for a specified amount of time.
3. They issue with a waiver stating that they will never cover anything pertaining or relating to your condition.
In the event that they won't cover it, they will direct you to the state risk pool. Each state has a risk pool that will offer health insurance for a higher premium to those that are otherwise uninsurable or who have certain conditions that won't be covered through a traditional insurance plan.
All ins companies will have the built-in 12-month pre-exisiting condition clause which means....anything you have had treated in the last 12 months will not be covered for the first 12 of your new policy. This is waived if you have proof of prior coverage for at least 12 months, which you do. Be sure to have something ready to pick up on the day that you lose coverage through the military. Most states give you a window of time where you can go without and not lose the pre-exisiting credit. In your particular situation, I would strongly advise against going without coverage.
Good luck!
