When travelers think of a trip to the United States, there are usually two reactions, both of which have to do with visitor health insurance. Do any of your friends or relatives think this way?

A person either thinks that if he/she falls ill, then the cost of healthcare will wipe out their finances and so, a trip to the United States is not a good idea. At the other end of the spectrum are people who believe that positive thinking will work wonders, and that nothing will happen to them; so they travel to the U.S. without any protection.

Both these attitudes are risky, and the United States has so much to offer in terms of experience that canceling a visit merely because of a fear of falling ill shouldn’t keep anyone from visiting the wondrous country. Nor should someone be foolhardy enough to make the visit with no health insurance.

Visitors health insurance can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of the airfare, and provides adequate coverage against sudden illnesses. However, if you have any pre-existing conditions as defined by the look-back period, these might not be covered. Either way, purchase your tickets, your visitors’ health insurance, and get ready to enjoy what the United States offers!
