If you spend most of your time in the USA, then you can buy USA cover on an annual basis. However, if you spend most of your time outside the USA, you can choose to add USA cover to your plan when you join or renew, enabling you to access medical treatment in the USA. We cannot cover USA permanent residents as they must be covered by a local insurance company.
