  • Visiting the U.S.? Don’t Forget International Medical Insurance

The United States is currently evaluating a bill that would create a tourism promotion organization. This group would encourage travelers throughout the world to consider the United States as their next travel destination, and it would also work to educate international travelers on what requirements were needed to enter the country. If you're considering visiting the U.S., you'll want to be sure to arrive with international medical insurance.

In the United States, it's important to have a health insurance policy because without one, visits to doctors and hospitals can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. The U.S. currently has a privatized health care system (though that may change in the near future, as this is a topic of much discussion), so not even basic care is afforded to native citizens or visitors.

An international medical insurance policy will absorb the high costs of coverage, leaving you to pay only a fraction of the bill out of your own pocket. You'll simply pay a small premium which will be determined by your age, where you're traveling to, and how long you are staying there. You'll often be able to recover your premium expenses just by using the policy one time during a visit to the U.S.

Whether you're planning a trip to the U.S. now, or you may be persuaded by the country's forthcoming efforts to market itself, be sure you arrive with an international health insurance policy in hand. Otherwise a trip to the hospital could end up ruining your vacation.
