    “ My mother is currently in the hospital and I need to have 6 months medical coverage for her in Florida. Starting from September 17, 2016 - March 17, 2017. Are you are to insure her at the age of 76. Also she is visiting from Jamaica. “

    Unfortunately, there is no coverage available for things that have already happened. Things that have already happened are considered pre-existing conditions. pre-existing conditions are not covered under any type of travel medical insurance due to the short-term nature of the plans.   The only thing that is covered in relation to a pre-existing condition is something diagnosed as an acute onset of a pre-existing condition. An acute onset of a pre-existing condition is a sudden and unexpected recurrence of a pre-existing condition and is up to the doctor's diagnosis.   Customarily, travel medical insurance covers anything new that happens, emergency and non-emergency both; like a new illness, sickness, or injury that happens after the policy starts. There are many policies that also cover an acute onset of a pre-existing condition.   For your mother in her 70's, the best policy that also covers an acute onset of a pre-existing condition is Safe Travels USA Comprehensive.   You can get quotes and purchase Safe Travels USA Comprehensive here.   After your deductible, Safe Travels USA pays 80% of the first $5,000 billed, and then 100% thereafter up to the policy maximum. You can choose your deductible in the plan application. When choosing a deductible of $0, you are minimizing your out-of-pocket expense if you were to ever use the insurance.   You can learn more about the plan in the brochure.   You can also view the Description of Coverage.   You will need her passport number and date of birth to purchase the plan.   You can also view, compare, and purchase any of our plans here.

    “ My wife and I (both 65 yrs) are green card holders and visit USA every six months to be with the family. Please inform me about the plans that cover travel to USA and back to India and health cover in USA. “

    If your parents are on green card holders but live the majority of the time outside of the U.S. and are just visiting the U.S. with their green cards, the best policy for them is Patriot America Plus. Patriot America Plus is a comprehsive coverage plan which is suitable for both visitors and green card holders. If your parents are living the majority of the time in the U.S. with their green cards, the best plan for them is Green Cover. Green Cover is formatted to bridge the gap between becoming a green card holder and becoming eligible for Medicare. Green card holders above the age of 65 living permanently in the U.S. have to wait 5 years in order to apply for citizenship, at that time they are also eligible for Medicare. Medicare is the domestic healthcare plan for those 65 years and above in the U.S. During that 5 year waiting period, one plan available to them is Green Cover. If you have any questions about these options, you can feel free to contact us by email at: support@visitorscoverage.com or by phone at: 866-3849104.

  • Q
    “ I have not been feeling well and will visit a doctor. If I purchase a policy before I visit will i be covered? “
    A
    The purpose of travel medical insurance is to cover any new and unexpected illness, sickness, or injury that occurs after the policy start date. Unfortunately, if you purchase a policy after something has happend, what has already happened will be considered a pre-existing condition and will not be covered.
