Pacific Prime, a major Asian health insurance brokerage, has introduced new health insurance solutions for American citizens leaving the US and all visa holders entering the US. These individuals are required to secure health cover that complies with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as Obamacare.
The ACA-compliant plans, available directly from Pacific Prime, provide full portability and worldwide coverage in a single policy. They also meet the minimum essential cover requirements of the US, allowing policyholders to avoid paying hefty penalties. All plans are open all-year round and are underwritten by trusted global insurers.
Neil Raymond, managing director of Pacific Prime, commented: “ACA-compliant insurance is a massively important product for not only American citizens but also foreigners holding relevant visas. These plans not only offer worldwide coverage but also meet ACA mandated coverage in the US and therefore avoid paying the heavy non-compliance fines.
“Pacific Prime has seen increased demand for these products and, as more insurers develop international coverage plans that also meet the ACA requirements, we will strive to bring them to our clients.”
