Don't Visit USA If Pregnant

A British couple have been handed a £130,000 medical bill after their son was born 11 weeks earlier than expected.
Katie Amos, 30, and her fiancée Lee Johnston, 29, were not prepared for their son Dax to be born at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan during a Christmas trip to the city. The couple had planned the trip as a last holiday before their baby arrived.
All things considered, the NHS doesn't seem so bad now does it.

So the infant was in intensive care for how many weeks? The couple did not have insurance? I'm responsible for their health care? why?

Another is to require visitors to have health insurance.
