#2  Deductible is the amount of expenses that must be paid out of pocket before an insurer will pay any expenses.

It is never too late to buy travel medical insurance for US tourists unless the visitor is already sick or injured, in which case the existing ailment will not be covered. As long as the international traveler is fine, he/she can buy the travel insurance at any time. There are some travel insurance plans in the US that have certain time constraints since your latest arrival to the US after which travelers are not eligible to buy travel insurance, however not all US travel insurance plans have these constraints.
