In doing a search regarding health insurance, the threads are all a bit dated.

Who is offering individual health insurance to residents of the VI? Any comments on rates, service, etc.?

I checked with BUPA and their coverage didn't interest me for the price. What I would like to see is whoever has the Govt employees contract to offer health insurance to the population as part of the deal, I think they have Anthem now

The government insurance is Cigna. It would be great if they would open up their enrollment. United Health Care is one that allows you (for a pretty penny!) to buy an individual plan. We looked into switching (can't think of the other one, will post later) but UHC has doctors here and on the mainland in their plan. The other one only had Puerto Rican doctors and facilities.

Don't they have to for ALL the VIs? They can't pick and choose, I don't think...
