Does Travel medical insurance provide coverage for Emergency Room and Urgent Care?

Yes, travel insurance is intended to cover new and unexpected injuries and illness. As long as the visit isn't because of a pre-existing condition, E.R and urgent care visits are covered. Keep in mind, an acute onset of a pre-existing condition is covered only by certain plans. We recommend the following plan if acute onset of pre-existing conditions is a concern for you: Cover America - Gold plan, which provides coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions. For age 69 and under, the plan covers acute onset up to the coverage limit, and up to $30,000 for people age 70-79.
