Hi everyone - It's my first time in the new forum - looks great!!
My Aussie husband and I are moving to San Diego in March 2012 with our toddler son after almost 6 years here in Oz.
I am looking into health insurance as my husband has a job lined up but will be an independent contractor for an Aussie company. Since I don't have a job lined up, we unfortunately will have to purchase our own insurance for the immediate future. I'm finding that in CA you have to be a resident of CA for 3 months before you can start coverage if it's a self-purchase policy. Annoying! (Man, I am going to miss Oz's health coverage!!)
Anyone have any ideas, other than our travel insurance, about what we can do? Are there any policies for new migrants or ways around that rule?
What did you do if you had to purchase your own insurance straight away?
