Honestly, I can't remember exactly as it was 2016 when he came over (he's still alive and just had 98th b'day). ISTR it was in the region of £2k for 2 weeks.

Re: health insurance for 70-year-old immigrating to USA?

They managed to get a suitable policy for a 94 YO with multiple pre-existing conditions (covered). We've used them multiple times across multiple years and been good.

Re: health insurance for 70-year-old immigrating to USA?
