I am a graduate student in a California based University and my health insurance is covered and paid by the school. I will be bringing my spouse to the US and I am looking for some affordable health insurance options for her. The school offers a supplemental health insurance plan through Blue Cross that proves to be expensive (almost $200 a month). Is it a good idea to be buying visitors insurance that is renewable? It will take me 2 more years to graduate. My friends told me about the Partriot America plan and the IMG plan. But I would like to hear from you about other options that are affordable. Thanks.
