Hi there, I was wondering if anyone on this forum knows anything about attaining insurance while going to the US. Since I will be skiing (that could be considered a dangerous activity), is there a more comprehensive insurance package that I will need? Also, what role do pre-existing injuries have in this process. I had knee surgery about three years ago, could they say that a knee injury isn't covered because of that? I was thinking about getting insurance with my bank. Does anybody have any experiences with this type of thing? Thanks, dacruick.
