Visitor Health Insurance for unexpected injury and accidents
On Oct 1st, 2017 there was a massive shootout in Las Vegas
. As a result of this shootout 59 people were killed and around 500 people were injured. One gunman from a nearby hotel in the Las Vegas strip fired thousands of rifle rounds on a large crowd of concertgoers on the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas strip. This incident serves as an example of a massive unexpected accident causing injury and even death to visitors who were visiting the United States, in this case to the casino town of Las Vegas.
Travel health insurance plays a big role in such situations where the medical treatment for the injured can be extremely expensive and can be prohibitive to pay out of pocket. Millions of visitors come to the USA annually for different occasions and Las Vegas is such a famous and popular desirable tourist spot that everyone living both within the US and outside the US would like to vacation there. This incident has raised concerns for people coming to the US from neighboring countries like Canada
where they are started paying more attention to travel health insurance options before starting their trip to the US.
