The US healthcare system is not easy to navigate. Until recently, residents and citizens were not required to get health insurance, leaving many in debt. Although this has changed with the reform, many things are still unclear. On the upside, the quality of medical services in the USA is fantastic.
In January 2014, having health insurance has become mandatory in the United States, with the goal of ensuring that all people in the country get access to proper healthcare. Whether you are covered by an international insurance policy or sign up with a provider in the USA is up to you. You can even fall back on Medicare or Medicaid if you are eligible to receive social security benefits. If you choose a US health insurance and are in need of medical attention, make sure that you pick a doctor or a hospital in your provider’s network. After all, not every medical service or facility is covered by your provider and you might end up with a hefty bill by the end of your treatment.
