Who Needs USA Travel Insurance?
Why Buy USA Travel Insurance?
If you are coming to visit the United States, you do not want to worry about how to pay for medical emergencies. USA travel insurance is medical coverage for you and your family from a U.S.-based company which understands American health insurance. USA travel insurance can be purchased for individuals as young as fourteen days of age and even for people travelling up to age 79 (or over 80 years old for Atlas International applicants), so you can have coverage for yourself as an individual, for your entire family or for your group.
HCCMIS® has a large network of physicians, hospitals, and laboratories, in metropolitan, suburban, and even remote areas of the United States which can all be searched easily online. When in-network providers are used for covered injuries or illness, there is zero coinsurance after your deductible has been met.
Should an unexpected recurrence of an existing illness or condition affect you while you are outside your home country, our USA travel insurance plan covers acute onset of pre-existing conditions for everyone under age 70.1

3 US Cities to Visit and Try New Cuisine
Looking for fine cuisine? Don’t let the famous fast-food industry in America fool you. New York City, Portland, and Chicago offer tourists a taste of America, without forgetting France, Greece and Italy.2
New York City
Known as the cultural melting pot, New York provides a plethora of options for food enthusiasts – especially for those who love meat. Grimaldi’s and Lombardi’s are two authentic Italian cuisine restaurants that are notorious for making the finest pizzas outside of Naples, Italy. Sullivan St. Bakery serves pizza Bianca, and some of the finest Roman trattorias are located in Greenwich Village.
From curry and chow mein to pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs, New York City offers a variety of restaurants that create a culinary experience for food lovers of all sorts.
Just outside of Willamette Valley, Portland, Oregon offers all kinds of world-famous wines, such as Pinot Noir. Because of Portland’s rich local produce, it’s able to contend with the best the world has to offer for food-conscious travelers. Nuts, berries and vegetables create a popular attraction for vegetarians and vegans.
A trip to the United States would not be complete without a visit to Chicago, Illinois. Some of the city’s most popular meals include hot dogs and beef sandwiches. Don’t forget about the Mexican food though, it’s a big hit in Chicago, as are the Greek and Polish dishes. Up for debate is the assertion that Chicago is the only city in America known to create an amazing pizza. Regardless of their supremacy, Chicago-made pizza is a must-have for tourists.
