Need Health Insurance for Partial Year?

By on | No Comments

Question: Does a new green card holder who stays in the US for 6 months a year only have to be covered by an ACA compliant plan? If yes, does it have to be for the entire year or just the duration of the stay in the US?

Answer: Yes. You must buy health insurance or pay the IRS penalty. You can cancel your coverage when you leave the country and reapply under Special Enrollment provisions when you return.
