Atlas America Insurance is Visitor’s Visa Insurance
People coming to the U.S. for a short period of time are often granted a visitor’s visa or tourist visa. This visa is typically granted for six months or less and can be extended if additional time is needed. Many people apply for these visas to visit their children or relatives, attend a family function or ceremony, or simply to visit the U.S.
Make sure you or your visiting relatives coming to the U.S. on a visitor’s visa have insurance in case of an emergency.
Atlas America Offers:
- You can choose to buy Atlas America insurance with a zero-dollar deductible and up to 1 million USD in medical coverage. Under such a scenario, you would only be liable for 20% coinsurance up to $5,000, or $1,000.

With Atlas America coverage, you or your relatives have coverage for up to $100,000 in medical expenses for the sudden, unexpected reoccurrence of a pre-existing medical condition.
