What coverage can be offered to a cancer patient visiting U.S from U.K?
Tracey Blakemore, 16 Nov 2016
There is one plan that would offer coverage for an acute onset of pre-existing conditions for cancer. It would cover only a flare-up of it. Meaning, not a long term coverage. Acute is meant to cover the initial "emergency," It is not meant to cover long-term care or stay in a hospital. To read more about what an acute onset of pre-existing conditions is, see: http://blog.visitorscoverage.com/acute-onset-of-pre-existing-condition-vs-pre-existing-condition/ We recommend taking a look at Liaison Continent A for the coverage explained above: http://www.visitorscoverage.com/liaison-continent-insurance-PlanA/
Have A Question About Travel Insurance ?Ask A Question
Hi, My father is 73 years old, a diabetic and had a heart attack in September 2016. He has made a great recovery and is now fit and ready to come visit us in New York, with my mum (70, no pre-existing conditions). But I'm having trouble finding travel insurance that would cover pre-existing conditions. I did find one plan but it only covers acute onset of pre-existing conditions up to USD20,000. I'm worried this will not be enough for any emergency situation, particularly since I don't know what kind of ailments could be interpreted as falling within the pre-existing conditions bracket. Can you help? They would like to travel around November 26 if possible. Or in early December. The trip would last about 28 days. Thanks very much and kind regards, Ravina
Hi, My dad is visiting the US for 3 months starting next week. He's around 66 years old and has diabetes, high blood pressure, and had bypass surgery 2 years ago. I have few questions: 1. What does acute onset of pre-existing conditions mean? 2. Does Kaiser hospital in California accept Inbound USA insurance? If not, then can you please give list of hospitals near Santa Clara, CA that would accept this insurance? 3. Do I need to pay upfront for all my new sicknesses or injuries, or is it cashless? 4. What would be the best insurance/coverage policy for pre-existing conditions like the ones listed above?
