Hi. I have sponsored my parents USA immigration and they have been issued immigration status since 03/2006. My parents are aged 65 and 70 yrs and they are pretty healthy and reside with me in Colorado. My father tried looking for job, but nothing worked out. I am fully supporting them, except for health insurance needs since I am unable to find one.
1. Since I gave signed affidavit of support to INS I-864 , what are my risks if they end up with emergency health problem care and hopsital bills may run in $1000's? Will hopsital come after me and puts me at risk of bankcrupcy?
Under INS I-864, are there any exclusions for emergency health care need?
2. Since they have not worked in USA, can they still qualify to buy Medicaire?
3. What are my options in terms of private buying them health insurance under immigrant status, althoguth most in my state says they are not eligle for coverage?
4. ? Medicaide eligibility
Any input or guidance will be appreciated. Thx Jatinder
