Can they be dependents and added to ur work health insurance?

Not with McKinsey. How’s it with your employer?

I need to check.

Doesn’t travelers insurance work for this?

Don't have a GC, but work on HHS projects - if they are over 65 they may be eligible for Medicare : they may have to buy Medicare Part A, but they have the option of doing that.

Can you kindly share more information on that?
