Hi- We are retiring and moving to STX in about 18 months. We do not have insurance through employers so we will need to buy health insurance. What do you recommend??

Staying stateside.

There is no affordable nor individual healthcare insurance available in the USVI, at this time, unless you work for a company or the VI Government that provides it or have own your own business, where you and spouse work together and meet requirements.

look into HEALTHCARE INTERNATIONAL a company based in london.there is a large enough group in st. thomas and st. croix that there is a 25% discount,which depending upon which policy and deductable you choose,makes it fairly affordable.

If you and spouse have a business, you can get health insurance. However, it's EXPENSIVE! I mean, REALLY EXPENSIVE.

Healthcare International was under a cease and desist order in the VI, the last I heard.
