Hi All,

I'm looking to maintain health insurance in the US while I live full-time on the island. Will return to Oregon each summer briefly and hope to get annual vision, physical and dental while there as well as travel back to Oregon for major medical interventions. Does anyone maintain health insurance in the US? Any recommendations? Thanks!!

Look at options for ex pats. Contact RFG insurance for grt options. You want air ambulance and coverage in Belize, or Mx of Guate should you need something local

Larry, one of the challenges we found is not all insurances qualify under the new guidelines for US citizens.....If you are a US citizen living abroad at least 330 days per year you are exempt from compliance and can still qualify for coverage such as groups like RFG or IMG.....Unfortunately if you live in the US for more than the time difference you must get an insurance that qualifies under the new ObabamaCare system......Hope that helps a little.....We are 330 exempt and using IMG, however are also shopping for options....Another company here is SAGICOR a Caribbean based insurance that actually has a complete network of Doctors including the finest care in Merida.....Hope this helps.....
