31 Jan USA travel insurance with Coverontrip
When you’re thinking about going on a truly great trip, a really unforgettable holiday, surely the United States is one of the strongest candidates. The reasons to visit are endless. From travelling across route 66, trying your luck in Las Vegas, to walking in the shadows of the skyscrapers in Midtown Manhattan.
Who wouldn’t want to go?
However, as advanced as the USA is, its public healthcare is definitely not up to average European standards. In other words, a trip to see the doctor ain’t free in the land of the free. So how expensive is it?
A good case study to help us answer this question is that of Karen Nielsen, a 28 year old woman. The Euribor.com.es blog explains that when Karen was in America, she began suffering stomach pains. After a trip to the doctors she was given a CT scan, which revealed appendicitis. This required immediate medical treatment, to remove her appendix. Karen didn’t have any travel insurance in place, so was handed a bill for $24,000.
Why buy travel insurance when visiting the US?
As the above example shows, medical treatment costs in America can quickly spiral to tens of thousands of dollars. Whilst you may think it won’t happen to you, when you factor in all the stresses on the body that travelling causes, such as from time zone & climate changes and generally over-doing it, your chances of falling ill are greatly increased. Therefore, if you don’t want to run the risk of ending up with a whopping great big medical bill…
…you will need to buy comprehensive travel insurance.
But travel insurance does move than simply pick up the tab when you fall ill. It’s there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing emergency assistance with just one phone call. When you require inpatient medical treatment, we manage the process every step of the way. Allowing you to concentrate on getting better. What’s more, if a medical emergency stops you from getting home as planned, we’ll arrange your repatriation as soon as you’re fit to fly.
But it’s not just medical coverage that travel insurance provides; there are loads of other benefits as well!
