Expat returning to Washington State - Need Health Insurance

Postby chikai » Mon, 20 Dec 2010 10:27 pm

We are moving back to the US (Washington State) end of this year. We have not been back to the US since 2006. Difference now is my wife and I are going back without a job and of course no company sponsored health insurance.

I have looked at a few options but most require a minimum 60+ day consecutive coverage. I am currently with a Singapore company's "group" fund which I have had little information on. As I understand it, I am covered for emergencies and major incidences. I don't have an individual policy number or proof besides a crappy PDF scan of my coverage and the name of the insurer.

Is this enough proof for my future insurer that I have been covered? Also we are planning on having children when we get back. I have read that there is a minimum deductible amount that removes waiting time should I be insured by my future employer. Any truth to this? Any recommendations on which company and how to apply from your experience?
