4 Best Health Insurance Plans for Visitors in the US

It is a well-known fact that healthcare in the United States is expensive. But, did you know that it is one of the costliest healthcare systems in the world? An article in The Washington Post, published in December 2016, revealed that, “Within a decade, close to a fifth of the American economy will consist of health care.” This is a clear indication of how much money the medical industry generates each year.

It is a common misconception that health insurance is for older people. The reality is that medical emergencies do not see age or gender when they strike. So, to keep yourself from incurring huge expenses on medical contingencies, it is best to secure yourself with a good plan.
