My question involves insurance law for the state of: California
I am a 31 year old adult who has recently returned to California earlier this month. Before that I was out of the country attempting to gain permanent residency in Canada (by marriage because I married a Canadian national). After excessive delays and legal issues I was forced to return to my home country by exclusion order.
California is the state I was born in, and my parents immigrated to live here. I have continued to put my parents' address as my permanent address while waiting for my immigration issues to resolve. I kept up a California drivers' license and bank account even while I was living abroad.
Now to the question. I am attempting to get health insurance in California. However, I have not physically resided in California for more than a month, despite keeping up the Californian permanent address, driver's license, etc. Does this mean I currently am not a resident in ANY state, because I spent a few years out of the country?
If that's the case, is there any way I can get insurance while I wait to be established as a resident? Are there any private companies that specialize in providing such insurance? I am in need of a doctor as I have not seen one for several years now, but cannot afford non-insured fees.
Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.
