One of the procedures that new immigrants must undertake, soon after arrival, involves obtaining health insurance. In most cases, the insurance they received from their home country does not cover medical expenses that occur while living and working in the United States. New immigrants who receive health insurance coverage through an employer or a family member's health insurance plan would not need to obtain health insurance but many new immigrants do not have health insurance coverage available through these avenues. They should investigate their options for obtaining health insurance as quickly as possible to insure that they will not encounter difficulties resulting from unexpected medical expenses.
