  • H1B Expiration / Pregnant / Medical Insurance?

    My gf is in the US on H1B and will file for GC later this year when I become a citizen. We have the tricky situation where she is pregnant (due 2 weeks before H1B expires)... As she is already pregnant, she can't be added to my health insurance. Does her employer have to stop all benefits as soon as H1B expires? Is there any provision for medical insurance to be provided to someone that's pregnant and H1B expires and they can't travel?...

    If her employment is terminated, she will be eligible to extend her medical coverage under COBRA. She will have to pay both her share and employers share of medical insurance premium plus a small administrative fee to continue her medical insurance. Ask her to contact her employer's HR department.
