I am stuck on health insurance and really need the helpful advice! 🙂
I'm looking for individual health insurance on St John. I am a US citizen moving on Island this month (August 2016). An employer plan is not an option as my employer has no plans available in the Virgin Islands. Here is what I have tried so far:
CIGNA GLOBAL: Used to offer health plans to US citizens moving to the USVI; now no longer does because a US Citizen living in the USVI is not considered an expat.
UNITED HEALTHCARE: Offers plans through employers only, not individuals.
BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD VI: Offers plans in the Virgin Islands through employers only. Individual plans "might be available in a couple of months" (whatever that means), but nothing now
AGILE INSURANCE: Appears to offer plans available through United Life Insurance Company, but in fact they do not. Not for US Citizens at least living in the USVI.
I am at a loss and can't believe it is so hard to find insurance here! I mean I knew it was hard... but it is now looking IMPOSSIBLE. Please help, all tips and suggestions appreciated!
