I would like to know if it’s possible to enroll from Brazil to get covered. I’m going to live in USA for a year (2015/2016) and I need a healthcare which includes assistance for women that is soon to be pregnant. My visa will be F-2. Thanks
For an F2 VISA, if you are already pregnant, you may have limited options for coverage. F1 VISA's seem to be more flexible in terms of getting coverage through HealthCare.Gov. Still if you plan to travel you should at the very least have limited coverage for Maternity. This can absolutely be purchased outside of the Marketplace and short term and travelers coverage can be purchased outside of open enrollment. You shouldn't be subject to the fee with a F2 VISA.
Call HealthCare.Gov for further clarification on immigration status.
