It is essential that to travel to New York (or any other place in the United States) you contract specific travel insurance. Many mutual and private insurance companies only cover a certain percentage in case of an emergency abroad. Traveling with additional specific travel insurance gives you the guarantee that it covers you 100%; hospitalization, minor cures, operations, transfers between countries, quarantines... Accidents happen, our luggage is stolen or lost, there are flight delays... have everything covered for a little bit!
