Thank you for your question. If your husband is visiting South Carolina, you can consider the Green Cover plan or Inbound USA. The Green Cover plan is similar to the Bridge Plan, but it does not have restrictions for South Carolina. All plans would only provide coverage for new and unexpected illness or injury. These would not cover for pre-existing conditions and related issues, preventive care, dental or vision.

A pre-existing condition is defined as a medical condition that existed in a person before the insurance policy became effective. It is generally up to the attending physicians to determine if a given situation would be considered a result of a pre-existing condition or not. Triple Bypass would most likely be considered a pre-existing condition, especially if your husband is on maintenance medication for it. Most likely anything related to heart conditions would not be covered by the plan. Please feel free to e-mail us, if you have any questions or need assistance with buying a plan.
