Health insurance options for immigrant mom turning 65
I'm a US Citizen and want to file an immigration petition for my mother (who has some pre-existing medical conditions). By the time she arrives in the US (in a year's time), she'll be 65 or close to 65. I'm concerned about her health care in the US since..
1) marketplace health insurance (such as coveredca.org) doesn't accept people over 65
2) and Medicare/MediCal (which accept people over 65) are available only for US Citizens or Legal Immigrants who have been in the US for at least 5 years.
Would appreciate the advice/suggestions of this group regarding my mother's healthcare.
