Safe Travels USA Insurance FAQs
Q1: Which doctor or hospital can I go to?
Q2: When will I receive my ID card?
The print out of the on-line buying receipt/virtual ID card is the proof of insurance and can be used as an ID card. Additionally, you will be emailed the ID card that you can print and take to the doc/hospital. Also, when filling out the online application, you have the choice of getting supplemental information and ID card in the mail. If you would like to receive the ID card and plan details by mail then make sure to choose "yes" for mailed ID card. You should receive your insurance package at your mailing address within 5-10 business days of purchase.
Q3: Can I cancel the policy and get a refund after purchase?
If the policy is cancelled before the start date, a full refund is available. After start date, refund is available only if you do not need to visit the doctor, and there is no claim on file. A prorated refund for the unused number of days is refunded. A $25 cancellation fee applies.
Q4: Does this plan have travel coverage?
Yes, Safe Travels USA Insurance has on flight coverage from home country to the U.S. as well as back to home country. This coverage will only apply if the flight days fall during the plan effective dates. If applicable, make sure to select the start date when the insured leaves the home country (U.S. CST) and select the end date the day they arrive home country on the trip back (CST)
Q5: Do I have to pay upfront at the doctor's office or are they going to bill the insurance company directly?
The billing process is at the discretion of the provider. They can either ask the insured person to pay up front, or can bill the insurance company directly. Usually for bigger bills like hospitalization, surgery etc., they tend to bill the insurance company directly. For smaller situations, like a doctor consultation, they are more likely to ask the insured person to pay first. However, for any claims to be processed, the insured person has to follow the claim process and send in the claimant information form to the insurance company. This would be applicable even if the providers directly bill the insurance company.
Q6: How do I file a claim?
Please refer to the following article concerning the claim process:
Q7: What information do I need to purchase this plan?
Name(s), date(s) of birth, and passport number(s) of the visitor(s).
Q8: When I buy this plan, do I need to make the full payment all at once or do I have the option of paying it on a monthly basis?
Based on the desired coverage length you have selected, you have to make the full payment all at once.
Q9: I want to purchase insurance for more then one visitor. Should I purchase two separate policies for them or have a combined policy?
The benefits and cost does not differ if you buy individually or combined policies. If the visitors have different travel plans (might be coming together but leaving on different dates, etc.) it is recommended to buy separate policies.
Having separate policies gives you more flexibility in renewals and cancellations.
