Hello, My mother-in-law has cancer and is on chemotherapy in Egypt. She plans to visit us in the states. My husband and I are green card holders. She is 71 years old. If she brings her medication with her, will the insurance cover the hospitalizing costs? She needs to be hospitalized in order to take the chemotherapy infusion. It's between a day and four days a month. Also, if she needs urgent care due to side effects, will the insurance cover that? Thank you

Travel insurance does not cover for existing conditions and related treatment and medical procedures. Insurance will cover for any new or unexpected medical conditions as per the policy terms.
