This is going to be a long article and will be accompanied by a video. Please take the time to read this properly and watch the video rather than ask me questions I have already answered in this article.
This article (and all of my articles) can be translated into many languages – look for and click the “Translate” button – usually in the bottom left corner of the page. So if you do’t fully understand this article in English, switch to your language to make sure you understand it well. Once you understand what I am suggesting, the video will make more sense even if you don’t understand my words on the video.
I am writing this in late October 2019. In about 1 week from now the new Healthcare requirement will come in to force. I described the introduction of the new requirement in a video here, but since the introduction very little information has been published about how to handle the new requirement in interviews. Anyone interviewing in November or December will be dealing with a new requirement with no solid information on how Consular Officers (COs) will assess this requirement. Frankly, I would not be at all surprised if COs themselves have no idea what to do. So I am writing this article to give a suggested way to prepare for and handle the questions when they arise. You don’t have to take my suggestion, and I cannot at this point guarantee it will be accepted, but once we have had feedback about the interviews, I will update this article to let people know what worked, or what did not work.
The new requirement is now described by the Department of State here. Please go and read that. As I read it, there are no specifics about showing a healthcare insurance policy. Here is the critical wording which describes how the new requirement will be handled in the interview.
Requirement at visa interview
During the visa interview, applicants should be able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the consular officer that they have the financial resources to pay for reasonably foreseeable medical costs or will have approved health insurance from the list above within 30 days of entry into the United States. Officers will review the medical and financial documentation that is already part of the applicant’s case file and may request additional information or documentation as needed. Prior to the visa interview, applicants may wish to review costs and eligibility requirements for approved health insurance plans or consider how they would pay for the reasonably foreseeable medical costs of any current medical condition they may have.
So – if you are interviewing in November or December 2019 – here are your options:
Option A: Ignore the new requirement and hope the COs have not been told to permanently refuse a case with no healthcare insurance plan. That would meaning “hoping” that the CO will either ignore the new requirement or at least put you on AP and tell you to follow up with proof of a plan for insurance. The policy states the CO will review medical and financial information that is already part of the file. So it is ESSENTIAL that you show adequate cash savings OR an I-134. You should already have prepared those, so I won’t go into great detail other than to provide this link about meeting financial requirements.
Option B: Prepare thoroughly so you can demonstrate you understand the new requirement and have a solid plan to get healthcare insurance within 30 days of entering the USA. In addition, just as in option A, your financials will be important to show you have the money to pay for your plan. So again – go and read this link about meeting financial requirements . The rest of the article is going to describe how to prepare yourself to prove that you have the ability to meet the new requirement. The accompanying video will show you step by step how to get quotes for healthcare options so you can print this quotes and take them to the interview. The CO will, hopefully, take note that you understand the process and the costs to get health insurance, and therefore will meet the commitment to get healthcare coverage within 30 days of arriving in the USA.
Preparation for Option B
In the published proclamation and also on the Department of State webpage about the new requirement. There is a list of the type of plans that would meet the requirement – but it basically boils down to two types of plan. One is to show that you will enroll in an ACA approved Healthcare policy, and the other is that you take a “Visitors” Healthcare insurance policy for a period of at least 1 year. Either of those options will cost a lot of money, so it is important that you investigate and understand the amount of money you will need to show. Remember, my suggestion, unless you have a lot of cash savings to show, is that you provide an I-134 from someone you know in the USA. That should (I hope) cover the financial aspect of the new requirement, if you also show a sensible plan that you can afford.
So what to do next. My video below will guide you through the steps you need to take for the following two quotes.
- Get a quote from the Healthcare.gov website for an ACA plan (this is the most expensive option).
- Get a quote and information for a Visitors healthcare plan. You can use my affiliate link for that type of plan here.
Remember I am ONLY suggesting you get quotes at this point. At the time of writing, I DO NOT think you have to purchase an insurance plan prior to the interview. You are getting these quote purely so that you can demonstrate that you have taken serious steps to make sure you can initiate insurance coverage once you arrive in the USA. I am hoping that COs will simply evaluate your need, understanding and ability to get the insurance within the 30 day window.
In reality you absolutely should have some form of healthcare insurance, as travel insurance plans may not provide adequate coverage or a system in place to handle the incredibly expensive costs associated with healthcare in the USA. A relatively minor healthcare event can certainly cost thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars. So – travel insurance policy providers will look to write exclusions so that they don’t have to pay for the huge costs involved.
Lastly, Healthcare insurance is a big topic. Whilst this article is about meeting the new requirement and passing the interview, you WILL need to get healthcar insurance in the USA. The ideal method is to get the plan through your employer, but in the interim period between arriving and getting a job with healthcare insurance, you should consider taking one of the visitors plans or, better yet, an ACA plan. Read more about that at this earlier article.
Please note that I am an affiliate of the visitors plan provider. If you choose a plan through my affiliate link I get a very small commission which goes towards the expenses of running this site.

hi mr. brit ,
a question slightly out of the subject, in the i-864 what is considered a family , if i have an aunt in the united states can i be elegable for the i-864?
October 27, 2019 at 00:08
No – DV uses I-134.
November 16, 2019 at 13:01
Hello Brit i’m a green card winner DV2020 my case number is AF40*** but i haven’t yet submit my DS-260 because i’m looking for my passeport.So my question is am i late or not ?
November 16, 2019 at 17:46
October 27, 2019 at 02:11
So I’ve just tried to have a quick look at the costs of an ACA plan with a NY zip code but the healthcare site guides me to another site where I don’t get much information about possible prices like you showed in the video. Is there any other way to get quotes for NY?
October 27, 2019 at 04:06
That is it. Follow the process.
October 27, 2019 at 21:08
October 27, 2019 at 03:03
Hello mr Brit does this apply to D.V lottery winners too. Because at first I read we don’t have to show any financial stability. Does this mean we should also prepare a financial statement as well as a health insurance plan?
October 27, 2019 at 04:05
October 27, 2019 at 03:42
Am am a Dv2020selectee and my husband lives in the US is it possible that he can include me on his health care plan so as to meet the new health insurance plan?
October 27, 2019 at 04:05
October 28, 2019 at 09:52
are you sure? because some healthcare services won’t do that unless the wife is there.
October 28, 2019 at 21:06
I am sure. A husband can include a wife. He should NOT do that until she is moving to the USA – but that is a valid, realistic plan to discuss for the interview.
October 27, 2019 at 03:58
October 27, 2019 at 05:22
Thank so much for provide these info and i absolutely will get quote visitor from your aflink.
i wondering in Financial resource. I am alone and i have to show 10k usd for prove. yes i got it.
10k usd. cover the health care quote too. i need to show more than 10k usd or not.
Thank so much,
October 27, 2019 at 18:15
More would be better, especially with the new healthcare requirement.
October 28, 2019 at 03:21
“More would be better, especially with the new healthcare requirement.”
>> that mean just 10k usd it’s ok?
October 28, 2019 at 04:32
It is not a precise number – so MORE would be better.
October 30, 2019 at 12:02
for a family of three, how much money is enough to demostrate? thank you
October 31, 2019 at 15:58
October 31, 2019 at 16:12
I mean for health insurance, approximately how much money should a family of three has in a bank account to demonstrate to the co that they could pay for it when they’ll be in usa.
October 31, 2019 at 18:55
Read the article or watch the video.
October 27, 2019 at 05:50
Well visitors plans aren’t that expensive, like 300 to 400 bucks for one person.
Thank you Simon, very cool!
October 27, 2019 at 11:00
That’s the point – for you is ok costs. For some countries and some people it’s like one or even two-three monthly salaries! So that’s not cheap at all for them. And that thing alone would discriminate some people over others.
October 27, 2019 at 18:16
These plans are OK for short term – but an ACA plan would be better after a few months.
October 28, 2019 at 08:19
So let’s just say I buy a visitors plan and then show my proof of insurance to the CO, they approve my Visa, I then travel to the US, find a job and get a solid american insurance provided by employer
Is that a good plan or not?
October 28, 2019 at 21:02
October 28, 2019 at 21:03
No – don’t BUY an insurance plan for the interview. It will be running while you wait to move. Please read the article or watch the video.
October 29, 2019 at 03:49
Okay thank you very much!
October 28, 2019 at 15:04
These plans are OK for short term?? are you referering to the answer above like 300 up to 300 usd for insurance? could we then get such policies at such rates to get our visas approved ?
October 28, 2019 at 22:01
I don’t think you read the article or watched the video. I am saying do NOT buy these policies for the interview. Just show that you have a full understanding of the costs and a plan to pay for them.
October 28, 2019 at 22:10
Sir, i am not buying anything i am just assuming if tha was the case travel health insurances would do the trick
October 27, 2019 at 09:16
If you cannot get I-134, how much do you think will be enough savings for 2 adults and 1 child 8 years old?
Would $70k be enough? I dont have anyone that could sign I-134 for me. I would go through the London embassy.
October 27, 2019 at 18:23
October 27, 2019 at 09:28
Thank you for the information
So what kind of prof are we take to the interview? Is there a way to prof that? or we should only to understand the health care insurance plan?
October 27, 2019 at 18:23
Please read the article or watch the video.
October 27, 2019 at 17:32
The money I have is only in cash and I can’t open a bank account due to the current situation in my country. Is cash generally accepted by the CO?
October 27, 2019 at 18:39
For proof of financial ability?????? Not normally, no.
October 27, 2019 at 18:09
Could someone please clarify one thing for us?
Reffering to costs of medical coverage from the link in point 2 :
There is a great medical coverage plan in “Patriot America Plus” – familly of 2, 1 year, 1 mln USD coverage per person, 0 USD deductible – 4400 USD (per familly per year), which is fine and cheap.
But on the next page we can read :
Please note that :
Not Available for Addresses from the Following US States: Maryland (MD).
Not available if Home Country/Country of Residences are: United States (USA).
Not available for Citizens of: Botswana (BWA), Gambia (GMB), Ghana (GHA), Niger (NER), Nigeria (NGA) & Sierra Leone (SLE).
So.. in my opinion that isn’t a plan for DVL winners as their “country of residence” is USA (or supposed to be 😉 ) after they cross US border.
October 27, 2019 at 18:43
There is a bit more clarity here:
They expect you to not list USA as your home country.
November 1, 2019 at 16:56
We need a “thank you” button here 😉 to avoid spamming your site with “thank you ” messages 🙂
Thank you for that link. 😉
November 2, 2019 at 15:53
October 27, 2019 at 18:13
I read the whole new proclamation which is crazy. But my question can any one from USA other than my sponsor can buy me the health insurance? Or some one potential buyer from my residence on behalf of me can he or she buy the health care?
Thanks for quick reply.
October 27, 2019 at 18:16
Hi brit thanks for ur time,
My question is what is the minmum financial requirements that must be stated on i134 form to show that my sposnsor can afford to buy me a health care ins. With in 30 days of entrance in USA?
October 28, 2019 at 04:40
Brit, do you have any reply for this?
October 28, 2019 at 04:57
There are no specifics about :additional” income. Just make sure the sponsor easily meets the income requirement..
October 27, 2019 at 19:37
may AF cases are being discriminated by this Health insurance thing. Don’t you think so Simon?
October 28, 2019 at 02:08
That is obviously the intention.
November 5, 2019 at 12:17
October 27, 2019 at 21:03
Hi Brit, I was rejected for the DV program 2020 and the program is already closed. But I m little bit confused about the warning in the last paragraph which asked me that if I fail to take the action requested within one year following visa denial under section 221(g) of the immigration and nationality act then section 203(g) of the act will require termination of the petition on which your visa application was based.
So do have I a chance to appeal or not?
October 28, 2019 at 02:40
If you mean the DV2019 program – that is over and there is no chance of appeal.
October 27, 2019 at 22:21
HI Simon, there is something confusing in your article, I understand from the proclamation that ” an unsubsidized health plan offered in the individual market within a State” is one possible solution, and this basically the excludes all ACA or Healthcare.gov options, but you mention in your article this is an option.. which is contrary to the objective of the proclamation.. Are you sure ACA options is possible for DV selectees?
October 28, 2019 at 02:42
I don’t see why you jumped to the incorrect assumption that ACA plans are excluded. Unsubsidized simply means not accepting the subsidy. If you watch my video that would be more clear to you.
October 29, 2019 at 15:42
But this says something different. Among other, “non–Affordable Care Act (ACA)–compliant short-term health plans authorized by the Trump administration” are the ones approved. Source https://www.nilc.org/issues/health-care/health-insurance-proclamation-oct2019/
October 28, 2019 at 02:25
If am schedule for interview in my country, can I buy insurance from here that will cover me for 2 months before meetx CO? Or it must only be bought while in US
October 28, 2019 at 02:47
I think I made it clear that I do NOT advise anyone to buy insurance before the interview.
October 28, 2019 at 05:48
Hello BritSimon, A lot of thanks for your advices.
I need your sugesstion. My wife is a main applicant for DV 2020. About health care issue, can we say that, We all -our family will enter USA together and after 2-3 weeks my wife and children will leave USA back home and come in summer before school starts. During this time I myself will be in the USA and find job and settle properly. Can i tell that we will be insured for one months after initial entry.
My insurance will be more than one month because i am staying in US after we enter.
And When all members will join we will be insured for longer period.
Is that ok, is it good plan?
October 28, 2019 at 20:51
It’s truthful – so yes.
October 28, 2019 at 06:09
Hi Mr Simon
Should i hir lawyer for change of status adjustment? or i can handle it by myself. The KCC sent me a letter regarding of it and do i have to apply for it now or wait until my number become current? thanks
October 28, 2019 at 20:52
Most people handle AOS without a lawyer.
October 28, 2019 at 10:08
please a question outside dv. a petition question.
if a CO ask you to provide a insurance or bank documents with your spouse how you going to go about it.
October 28, 2019 at 21:08
I only answer DV questions.
October 28, 2019 at 10:31
Your suggestion is needed as usual.
My question is abt finances and healthcare insurance.
We are family of four (1 kid,1infant) and interview is in the first week of nov.W have arranged 2 sponsors and between two of them one is suitable as he has not sponsored anyone before plus we have 35000$ in our account.Now what does the consular ask?? Do they directly ask about I-34 form or about our financial statement?
My question is what should we provide if they only ask about our financials proof then do we have to present I-34 form also? or is it up to us to present anything i.e Financial statement or I-34 Form.
Secondly if they ask about health insurance plan then is this amount sufficient?(35000$)
Thirdly can we show them two sponsors?
October 28, 2019 at 21:10
1. Take everything, show them whatever you have.
October 28, 2019 at 13:23
I submitted my DS-260 right after figuring out that i was selected. And i already received my documents email. However, now we know that that email is being sent to “everyone”. So i have two questions:
1. Is everyone who is selected in DV2020 being notified by an email? Or is it only the people who at least entered the DS-260 page for once. Because this would change the course of the case numbers. Because some people usually forget to check their results therefore they don’t claim their visas.
2. I submitted my DS-260 back in May. There wasn’t a section about the I-134 right? So i decided that i will ask a friend to support me. I won’t need to change any info on DS-260 right? As far as I understand, I only need to bring the form to the interview right? Can you refer me to an article of yours about the I-134?
October 28, 2019 at 21:15
1. Everyone. DS260 submitted or not. Yes it could change things.
2. Take the I-134 to interview.
October 28, 2019 at 22:22
Hello Simon, thakns for your time and efforts! based on your suggestions and after consulting the two options you mentioned above, travel insurance seems to be more reasonbale financially speaking i mean. I intend to travel along with my spouse and i have just gotten a quote for 365 days worth 635 bucks or so. My question is : is this plan (visitor plan) is eligible and shall i provide as well other financial prove along with that during the interview if ever it takes place? Thanks for your reponse beforehand sir
October 28, 2019 at 22:32
If you read the article or watched the video you will know that we cannot be sure yet what the reaction from the COs will be. So – wait until we see some reports after November interviews.
October 28, 2019 at 22:38
October 28, 2019 at 22:35
I am in USA and will apply for AOS after my case number will go current. I am currently in STEM OPT Extension (24 months OPT) after Master’s degree and I am working at my client’s site for my employer. My employer has not provided me health insurance and I haven’t had health insurance since almost a year.
1) What kind of insurance would i go for to be safe from public charge denial?
2) I didn’t had insurance since 1 year. Will it affect me even after taking insurance now? If yes, what should i do?
3) I unlocked DS260 and updated my city of birth but when i first applied for DV lottery i provided another city of birth. Will changing the city of birth in DS260 will also change it in initial application? Will this be an issue? If yes what can be done to correct it?
4) Since i came here as a student and later worked after graduating. Do i also need a sponsor?
5) What might be the questions for me at the interview in USCIS? What topics might they focus on?
6) They have asked for social media and i have provided my instagram name in DS260. Should i also provide youtube or gmail?
7) I didn’t had income last year so i didn’t file tax last year. Will that be a problem? If yes how to correct that?
8) Is there any other suggestion you would like to give me for successful AOS in USCIS as i am looking forward to doing it by myself and not hiring a lawyer?
Thank you in advance for your valuable suggestion!
October 28, 2019 at 22:44
2. Don’t use public assistance, adult medicaid etc. Get insurance.
3. If that is simply another city in the same country it is not a problem. The DV entry won’t change.
4. Possibly. It depends how much you are making.
5. Please read the FAQ – put some effort into your own case.
7. You should file a return whether you had income or not.
8. Start paying attention. Read the link here: https://forums.immigration.com/threads/dv-2020-aos-only.340762/
October 28, 2019 at 22:56
1) By when should i get the insurance then?
2) Since i was in student status and didn’t file tax as i didn’t had income. What can i do now or how to defend that?
October 28, 2019 at 23:21
1. Now. Who should pay the bill when you get in an accident? Me – should I pay?
2. I already answered you. I am not a tax consulant.
October 30, 2019 at 03:29
Any chance for a second draw Brits
October 30, 2019 at 04:25
October 30, 2019 at 13:50
Here is my plan, I will show I-134 as per the procedure and when the CO asks about what’s my plan for health insurance I would simply reply that at the time of my travel to US, I will be taking a specific traveler’s health insurance (and show the printed quote) and say I will take more solid and permanent health care policy upon getting into US. I will also produce a bank statement with my about $3000-$4000 saving and say I will be using this money to buy traveler’s and initial insurance along with the help from my sponsor. As I am single and my sponsor easily meets the requirements, I feel it will satisfy the CO. Also, I am about to finish my undergraduate degree in business administration, so I feel confident about the interview.
Thanks BritSimon for these information. It really made the mental processing easy.
October 30, 2019 at 14:47
I am a Dv 2020 selector and my cousin lives in the US is it possible that she can include me on her health care plan so as to meet the new health insurance plan? tank you so mach Mr Brit
October 31, 2019 at 16:13
That is a silly plan. A person cannot include a cousin.
November 1, 2019 at 11:14
It mean that cousin couldn’t sponsor for health insurance?
November 2, 2019 at 15:35
A person cannot include a cousin on their healthcare policy.
October 30, 2019 at 21:49
Thank you for your work Britt!
Maybe i didn t understand everything 100% but how much does the insurance cost?
Me and my wife plan to take with us around 15k dollars,knowing that we have a very good sponsor that will help us with jobs.My question.
Does this solve the insurance problem?
Should i put this money in my bussines account?
Thank u in advance!
October 31, 2019 at 16:28
Please read the article again or watch the video.
October 31, 2019 at 05:02
Hi Mr. Simon!
I’m DV-2019 and i got the visa in my passport.
May i be asked for that health care info in the airport or that new rule stuff isnt touching me?
October 31, 2019 at 18:32
Does not affect you.
October 31, 2019 at 12:20
Hi Brit, thanks for helping us understand as usual .
My question maybe far from the article above .
My friend is a selectee and just got pregnant .
My question is, do they accept pregnant Person for interview.
October 31, 2019 at 18:42
Of course. Humans get pregnant. So do people in America.
October 31, 2019 at 15:11
So i have read the article and watched the video on Healthcare requirements. If I’m clear, the ff are possible alternatives to meet the interview requirement;
1. I-134 + Healthcare Insurance (Quote)
2. Financial Statement + Healthcare Insurance (Quote)
3. I-134 only
October 31, 2019 at 18:46
1 and 2.
November 1, 2019 at 02:04
This is my situation :
Right now I have an insurance from my employer and my husband has another from his employer… For the next year w were thinking to delete his insurance and to be both of us under mine emlyer insurances as a family(my employer insurance is better and we are much more cored)
As I understand, this is completely fine, right? We will have no problem at interview, right?
November 2, 2019 at 04:44
November 1, 2019 at 11:02
Health insurance is compulsary or not.
November 2, 2019 at 15:33
Did you bother reading anything above?
November 1, 2019 at 19:23
Hi Brit, thanks for helping us!
You gave us two link in “Preparation for Option B”, but they are not confirm for DV Immigrant as I understood or am I not right?
It is taken directly from White House:
Here is part of this law:
(ii) an unsubsidized health plan offered in the individual market within a State.
This means that ACA Insurance Policy that is issued by subsidized plans will not be accepted and will be rejected at the consulate.
November 2, 2019 at 15:59
You should have watched the video. I showed how to increase the income to get a quote for an UNsubsidized ACA plan.
November 2, 2019 at 00:58
Hello mr brit
I already submitted d260 since may this year, but i currently there are addition information like “social media name” that they have added so as i can put some information!! My question is there any need for me to edit and put those info regardless of the fact that i have submitted the d260 since may
Second, how can i edit those if because have tried several times to edit it nt responding,
November 2, 2019 at 16:09
November 2, 2019 at 20:46
For political reason I flee my country so I did change my full names and change from
LONGO MAMBUis the name’s in my matric to KIEDIATIKO LUZOLO is in my passport.
So I am a qualifier plumber and have a certificate of plumbing who’s the same name with my passport.
So my question is wich name I can use to enter ?
November 3, 2019 at 16:11
You have to be truthful and need a passport that matches.
November 4, 2019 at 23:28
Hi Mate, recently my workmate did a DV interview for 2020 and was able to get his visa. He late told me that he wrote a work experience reference letter using our companies letterhead that he has 4yrs experience as intel analysts. What got me upset is he is just a warehouse worker with no qualifications. Doesn’t the KCC or CO check with workplace during interview if the reference letter is even legal. If this is the case then anyone can write up a fake work experience letter.
November 7, 2019 at 12:45
Good day Brit, am from Sierra Leone, i am a DV 2020 winner and i would like to know about some certain criteria which have been included for this category of winners as mentioned below:
1. My number is 2020AF31XXX, i have submitted my DS 260 application form and also KCC furhter required documents requested from me for onward processing. so when do i expect to have my 1NL, 2NL and interview date to be schedule?
2.The Insurance policy matter will it be communicated to winners in this category? OR how will they know that it is criteria for the interview process?
3.Failing to have or produce the Insurance Policy as part of your documents, will the CO refuse your visa approval during interview?
4. If the annual income of the person that will give the I-134 Affidavit is 90,000k is it ok to be produced for the interview?
5.What is the PROCEDURE that is to follow when i want to check the monthly CURRENT VISA BULLETIN ONLINE?
Finally thanking you for taking your time and to help me have clear clarity.

Good day brit. thanking you for making it clear to all dv2020 winners. Could you please help us to know about the following issues stated below:
1. During the process of filling my DS260 application form that was in June 2019, there is a column in it which is asking for vaccination according to the laws of America and you should explain, but in the process of filling i indicated YES but however failed to explain regarding the vaccination. Already i have submitted by DS260 application for onward processing as requested by KCC and i am about to get the vaccination with the card that is issued to show that you have completed the vaccination process. Failing to explain in my DS260 form has any effect to my application?
2. There is a column in the I-134 form wherein an insurance amount is to be indicated by the sponsor filling it. Does that insurance amount filled by the sponsor cover you as single principal applicant? OR you the single principal applicant should have yours separated from that of the sponsor’s?.
3. The I-134 form should be attached with some documents from the sponsor filling it, which are: A. 1040 FORM (Earning of employee-Most Recent), B. W2 FORM (Filed returns-Most Recent), C, Pay Slips, D. Photocopy ID of Sponsor. So in case wherein i have A,B,& D, is it compulsory to also have C, OR you can submit all other documents even if C is absent and will it affect your documentations for interview?
4.Can a national insurance company in my native homeland of Sierra Leone, Africa issued one in my favor OR it is only American native insurance company should do the issuing?
Thanking you and your team for giving us your time in making critical clarifications that will enable us to submit the correct complete documents which will make us avert visa denial or rejection by CO during interview process.

I`m this Winner. We have our own funds and not required 1-134. But Does that money needs to be under my name as i`m the main applicant.? Because half of the money is under my wifes name, in her bank account. Do I need to put everything under my account?
when going for the interview , I`m aware that we need to provide bank statements. How many months banks statements we must provide?

1. Either name.
2. A few months. Use some judgement.
