Travel insurance is not required for visitors to the US, but it is highly recommended because healthcare costs in the United States are extremely high as compared to other countries. Having travel medical insurance will help to ensure that you are covered in case of unexpected injury or illness. You may purchase a plan after arrival in the USA, but keep in mind that some plans have to be purchased within a certain period of time upon arrival to the USA. Additionally, it is good to know that you can purchase plans to cover the dates that you are in-transit to cover for any sicknesses, accidents, or emegency evacuations while you are flying or on layover.
