There are very limited choices of coverage available for visitors age 80 years and over due the fact that age is one of the primary factors insurance companies consider as a risk. Because of this, most plans for travelers over age 80 have restricted policy maximum options, reduced benefits and a higher premium.
However, because many seniors over 80 years old are at a higher risk of illness and injury, its even more important for them to have travel medical insurance, especially when visiting the United States. Without insurance, a simple doctor visit may cost hundreds of dollars and a trip to the emergency room could cost thousands of dollars out of pocket.
Many seniors of this age group are reluctant or fearful to travel because of the associated risks, but there are several plan options that offer important features for elders such as emergency medical care, acute onset of pre-existing conditions coverage and emergency evacuation. With visitors insurance, seniors can travel with peace of mind knowing they are covered for the unexpected.
Depending on your budget and policy maximum options, here are some of the best plans available for senior travelers over 80 years old.
