Hi! I am from Singapore and is keen to do a fellowship in Arkansas children hospital. As part of the J1 visa requirement, I will need to have health insurance covered before getting the visa. May I find out which will be the best for me? I have looked through the website. I am in the age group of 31- 34 and single with no medical history. It says on the website , about 500 USD for 12 months. Is that right?

Hello! Thank you for the prompt reply!

The guidelines are listed as below
The minimum J-1 insurance coverage requirements are as follows:
Provide a minimum of $100,000 per accident or illness.
Medical evacuation (emergency medical transportation to the home country) covered in the amount of $50,000.
Repatriation (the transportation of remains back to the home country in the unfortunate event of death) covered in the amount of $25,000.
The deductible must not exceed $500 per accident or illness.

I am planning to stay for a year. Will be alone and I have no medical conditions. The dates to start actually depends on the visa approval but I would expect it to be around June/July.

Which would be the best recommendation?
