Q1 Visa Insurance

As the healthcare costs are extremely high in the U.S., you must purchase a proper medical insurance for your entire duration of stay. If your employer provides the health insurance for you, it would be best to get coverage through them.

Q visa holders are not mandated to purchase ACA (Obamacare) compliant insurance. Therefore, they can purchase any medical insurance they like.
