Anyone with a healthshare?

Does anyone on the islands use a healthshare for their "health insurance"? If so, would you recommend? Which one?

I'm moving to STX next year and don't want to be spending a huge portion of my money on health insurance that I don't use. Please no messages stating that I'm stupid for moving after that hurricane.

Background info: I'm in good health and aren't on any medications. This would be for semi emergency purposes only.

I might be wrong but currently you cannot buy individual health care insurance in the US Virgin Islands. The only way you can buy health care insurance in the US Virgin Islands is if you are employed by a business who has a group plan.

You can buy individual healthcare from one of several providers if you hold citizenship from other country. Just Google "expat insurance".
