The Macori, Inc. policy includes the following:
• Medical benefits of $100,000 USD per injury or illness
• A deductible of $100 USD per injury or illness
• Repatriation of remains in the amount of a maximum $7,500 USD
• Expenses associated with the medical evacuation of the nonimmigrant visitor to their home …country in the amount of $10,000 USD
Please note that dental treatment is not covered by health insurance and is also expensive in the U.S. It would be advisable to check with your dentist at home in time to have any needed treatment completed before you travel.
If you are using a particular medication, you might want to bring enough to get you through the first week here. Some medicines, which are sold over the counter in your home country, require a prescription in the U.S. Please be sure to consult with our health center regarding your medicine needs.
