Insurance for foreigners visiting the United States is designed to protect travelers from high medical bills if they fall sick when they are on vacation or visiting family. Foreigners insurance is particularly important in the United States where healthcare for the uninsured can be very expensive.
While most visits to America pass without any negative incidents, it is better to be safe than sorry with medical insurance. Even a relatively non-serious accident such as a broken finger, or a stomach condition, can cost hundreds of dollars in medical bills when all the individual costs are added up.
Foreigners insurance is not limited to payments for doctors’ visits. Visitors are covered for hospitalization, surgery and prescription drugs.
Visitors can buy medical insurance for as few as five days or up to five years, depending on their individual circumstances. With a range of plans on offer, foreign visitors can find the coverage they need.
