Health insurance for immigrants who enter the
For the visitor to the
The insurance carriers are usually struggling to provide coverage for farm owners who cannot make the high monthly premiums as it is. Health insurance for farmers has taken a toll on their yearly budget which is volatile due to unpredictable seasonal conflicts on their products whether it is produce, field crops or livestock. Therefore, many independent farm owners find obtaining health insurance for immigrants who work as farm hands to be just as challenging for their own families' needs as it is to attempt to provide for the workers and their families. "The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him." (Nahum 1:7)
Coverage for farmers is more expensive than normal domestic medical policies due to the increased risk factor of farm life. The equipment and implements that are normal to the trade are dangerous and risky although necessary. Therefore, the cost of health insurance for farmers exceeds what the average farm owner can afford, especially if their entire income is based on raising crops and livestock. The risks that owners take economically is almost equal to, if not exceeded by, the risks they take physically. Insurance is equally as important to them as it is to their paid help, but providing health insurance for immigrants who are farm workers is a very difficult problem that may need to be addressed by governmental agencies. Such agencies are considering the concept of forcing paid health programs to cover farm owners, workers and those who are also immigrants.
