About Visit USA-HealthCare Visitors Insurance

Get Visitor Medical Insurance When Visiting the United States
Are you planning a trip to the United States? Maybe you are a parent of a student studying abroad, planning a summer vacation or want to move to the United States. No matter what your reason is, our Visit USA-HealthCare visitor insurance can offer you the coverage you're looking for when visiting the United States. Nationalized or government sponsored health plans rarely provide adequate coverage for visitors for injuries or illnesses that occur in the United States, which is why it’s important to get travel medical insurance.

The Importance of Visitor Health Insurance
Every year, thousands of international visitors and immigrants to the U.S. need emergency medical treatment and do not have the new immigrant insurance or visitor insurance to cover the high costs involved. Most travelers are unaware of how expensive medical care is in the United States. U.S. medical facilities also may not recognize insurance provided by a “foreign” insurance company and could deny services or demand up-front payment for treatment. Visit USA-HealthCare is a beneficial travel medical insurance plan that can provide illness and accident expense protection, and it can pay for treatment during your visit to the U.S.

This coverage for visitors insurance is available for as little as $1.12 per day* for travelers under age 30, and as low as $3.60 per day* for travelers ages 50-59! See our rate chart for more details.

Who qualifies for visitor insurance?

  • Business and leisure travelers
  • Parents of students studying in the U.S.
  • Tourists and holiday travelers
  • Church or missionary travelers to the U.S.

You can choose from two visitors' insurance plans, each offering a choice of four deductibles.

After reviewing the visitor insurance plans, you can quote and buy online, over the phone, by fax or by mail. With any method, you will receive a receipt and Confirmation of Insurance by email.

You may have to pay for medical care depending on the medical facility being used. If the medical facility requires payment up front, you then submit a claim for reimbursement, less your chosen deductible. While not a guarantee, payments for large expenses such as Emergency Medical Evacuations are typically coordinated and paid by the Insurance Company's Assistance Service.
The deductible is the amount that you, the Insured person, pay before the insurance pays for covered expenses. Visit USA-HealthCare's deductibles are per incident. Once the deductible is met, Visit USA-HealthCare will pay 90% of covered medical expenses up to $10,000, then 100% of reasonable and customary charges up to the plan limit. Visit USA-HealthCare offers a choice of deductibles: $0, $250, $500 or $1000. The lower the deductible, the higher the cost of insurance. In addition to the above choice of deductibles, there is also a $250 Emergency Room deductible which will be waived if admitted to the hospital.
The maximum an Insured would have to pay out-of-pocket for covered expenses is the chosen deductible ($0, $250, $500 or $1000) and 10% of the Reasonable and Customary charges for covered expenses up to $10,000, plus expenses that exceed the plan limit. Co-insurance is waived if expenses are incurred within the PPO Network.
Yes - you may go to any licensed health care provider. However, if you use a doctor or hospital in Study USA-HealthCare's large preferred provider network, you will pay a lower deductible and co-insurance than if you go outside the network.

A beneficiary is the person or persons who receives the Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefit if the Insured dies in an accident while insured under the policy. The Insured will automatically be the beneficiary for any insured spouse and children. Examples of beneficiaries include: your spouse, your children, your estate or your living trust.
