Q
I have a visitor who arrived yesterday. If I sign up for insurance today, will the coverage be effective start date today or will it be from tomorrow. I am checking because my visitor is feeling unwell today after the travel and I want to take her to the doctor.

You can purchase the visitor insurance any time before person travel or after the person reach to the destination country. So if the person already reached US, you an still purchase but the start date can be as early as the next day of the purchase date. However, it is important to note that IF the problem already exist before the policy start, that particular problem or related treatment may not be covered as it can be considered as "Pre existing" problem. That's why it is recommended to make the purchase before the person start the travel. But plan will cover for any other future risk as per the policy.
