Question: My parents currently live in the United Kingdom, but at some stage I may petition them to move to the states when I become a US citizen. If they become legal permanent residents, will they be eligible to purchase insurance through the exchange - or is there a set time period before they could do so?
Answer: Yes. You parents will qualify for coverage in the exchange when they have permanent residence status. I don’t know of a waiting period, but then the law is over 2000 pages so I could be wrong.
