Default Can they deny me Georgia Health insurance if I don't have a GA license??

I just moved to Georgia recently from Florida and still have my Florida Driver's license. I just applied for health insurance here in Georigia and told them I was a Georgia Resident. Do you think they will deny me for coverage if they see that I don't have a Georgia license yet?? I am worried and wondering if I should go get a GA license. I plan on stay here for maybe this next year or two then returning to Fl. I have recently just paid to renew my license in FL (my forever home)......what should I do?? Thanks for any expert advice.

Well two things to answer your question

First-- some people don't have driver's licenses. You don't need a driver's license to get health insurance... it is usually just a convenient and official form of ID that proves you live here.

Second- Even if you are just here for a year or two... you are a GA resident now. If you want/need to have a driver's license you are required to exchange your florida license for a GA license within 30 days of moving here (it will probably be something similar when you move back to Florida).

I have private insurance and don't recall them asking for my drivers license. I bought my insurance (BCBS) over the internet. I think they accept whatever you say is your residence. The only time I recall you can get in trouble if you wrongly residency insurance is when it comes to taxes (State, local or property)

That might be true when getting accepted... just make sure it is true and up to date.

Insurance companies tend to pick over the details a little bit closer when you need money from them rather than when you are just paying them money
