My cousin is 23 years old and is coming to the USA for 6 months on a visitors' visa. Can I buy medical, dental, and vision insurance for him? He doesn't have any pre-existing conditions, but he gets fever often and gets short of breath. Will it be considered as a pre-exisiting condition? What is the best policy for dental, vision, and medical? Please provide suggestions.

Hello, 

Yes, you can certainly find coverage for your cousin that will provide medical coverage, and some coverage for emergency vision and dental services. 

For additional information on this, see: Vision and Dental Coverage Under Visitors Insurance

It is always up to the doctors' discretion whether or not they consider a condition pre-existing or not. Your cousin may want to visit a doctor prior to his visit to discuss his current condition.

Please contact our support team if you have any additional questions.
