Why do I need health insurance?

While traveling, health and nutrition should be primary concerns. Since healthcare in the U.S. can be expensive, it is important to have good health insurance. The U.S. federal government and state governments do not offer financial assistance to pay for U.S. visitor healthcare.

Although you can purchase health insurance in your home country, many plans will not adequately cover your healthcare needs in the U.S.

Make sure your plan covers international travel for the entire duration of your time in the U.S.
