Healthcare in the USA is different to in other countries. It's a totally private service, and it's sometimes necessary to ask for an appointment with a specialist to get medicine that in other countries can be bought freely.
Given that un the USA the minimum price for a consultation is about US$300, it's a good idea to be safe, and take out travel insurance.
Check Your Insurance
Before taking out medical insurance, we recommend that you check all the insurance policies you currently have, including car and home. You may be surprised to find out that you already have medical insurance for the United States, but didn't know it!
You should also check the cover that comes with your credit card. Often, when buying a flight with this card, you get good coverage which protects you should the unthinkable happen.
Taking out travel insurance
If you don't have any coverage already, and you're looking to take out insurance, at Civitatis we offer a complete package from only 21€ (US$22.6) per person.
