Which travel medical insurance provides coverage for heart conditions like previous heart attack or stroke?

The plans that we offer are short-term travel insurance plans. Like all travel insurance policies, these plans only cover new and unexpected illness or injury that starts after the policy goes into effect. These do not offer much coverage for preventive care, dental, vision or pre-existing conditions such as heart attack or stroke. That being said, there are some plans which provide coverage for “acute onset of pre-existing conditions” meaning if you have a sudden and unexpected recurrence of your medical condition that requires immediate attention, your travel insurance plan may cover it. It is important to keep in mind, however, that the eligibility for these plans and benefits can vary widely depending on age, condition and destination. For travelers visiting the US, the CoverAmerica - Gold plan is a good option because it provides up to $30,000 in acute onset of pre-existing conditions coverage. For other international travelers, Atlas International can offer up to $100,000 in acute onset coverage. Additionally, it is always up to the attending physician to determine if a given medical situation is caused by a pre-existing condition or not.
