US Visitors Travel Medical Insurance
If you are an expatriate living in the US, it is strongly recommended that you purchase additional health insurance while you are in the country. You want to make sure you’re covered in the event of an accident, medical emergency, or sudden repatriation.
Before you travel, take the time to check if you need travel insurance. You also need to know if you want insurance in your home country, in the United States, or both.
If you plan to stay in the United States for less than a year, travel medical insurance may be enough to cover your needs. It is also a good option for young travelers who need basic emergency medical attention.
Most travel insurance policies provide coverage against accidents and illnesses, saving you the significant medical costs associated with medical exams and hospital visits in the United States. This insurance also gives you access to pharmaceutical care and translation services if needed.
