Health Insurance in New York

Reading about a country's health care system and possible travel insurances is always a good idea before you get there. This is especially true of the US health care as it is private and can be extremely expensive for a tourist if he or she is uninsured. 

If you are traveling from abroad, it’s important to know that the health care system in the U.S. works very differently to other medical systems. Health care facilities are largely operated by private sector businesses, and to obtain certain medicines that are easily available in European countries, for example, one usually has to have a prescription.

Given the fact that the minimum price for any medical consultation is approximately $300, we recommend hiring a private health insurance before traveling to the States. 

Check Out Different Insurance Policies

Before hiring any type of private health insurance, it is always a good idea to make sure that none of your other insurances offer this type of service, for example, your car or house insurance.

Another option is to make the most of the insurances offered by your credit card. It is wise to check the clauses before buying the flight tickets, since sometimes you get health insurance included if you buy the tickets with your credit card.
