New J1 visa health insurance requirements
Health insurance requirements for J1 and J2 visa holders are specified by the State department. The sponsor and the J1 visa holder must ensure that the health insurance they purchase meets the minimum requirement.
There have been some changes to these requirements which became effective on May 15, 2015. Make sure that the plan you purchase meets these updated requirements (see table above). The new rule also requires that sponsors must inform all exchange visitors that they, and any accompanying spouse and dependent(s), also may be subject to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
