Best Medical Insurance for USA Visitors Based on Age

“There will be very few occasions when you are absolutely certain about anything. You will consistently be called upon to make decisions with limited information. That being the case, your goal should not be to eliminate uncertainty. Instead, you must develop the art of being clear in the face of uncertainty.” ~ Andy Stanley

As they always say, the only thing certain in life is uncertainty. And as Andy Stanley suggests above, the only way to deal with all this uncertainty is to stay prepared. This is especially true when you are traveling far from home. Given the cost of medical care in the US, one way to prepare yourself for uncertainties while traveling is to choose a good medical insurance plan.

The problem is that a lot depends on the age of the policy holder. So, to make things easy for you, here is a list of the best medical insurance plans for different age groups.

This plan also allows you to visit any doctor or hospital of your choice.
