Why does travel insurance to the USA cost more than Europe?

This is because the healthcare system in the USA is private and very expensive. If you fall ill in the USA and need emergency assistance, it is very likely that the medical bill will be large and much larger than in most other worldwide destinations. Therefore insurance companies always charge higher premiums for travellers to the USA.
