Travel Insurance for Americans Living Abroad Visiting the US

Are you a United States citizen living or working abroad? Planning a short-term trip to the U.S.? If you have family members or children who are U.S. citizens making a short-term visit to America, do you have proper insurance protection? Eligibility for U.S.-based travel insurance policies can be complicated. Insurance providers cover U.S. citizens traveling abroad, but only a few offer travel insurance for U.S. citizens traveling to the United States. Therefore, it's important to review insurance policies carefully and ask your insurance agent if anything's unclear.

While some travel insurance providers based in the United States do offer travel insurance coverage for U.S. expatriates returning home, there's usually a waiting period of 3 to 6 months before they're eligible for coverage. Most American insurance companies won't cover you if you haven't lived in the U.S. for at least 6 months before applying for coverage. You'll want to make sure the health insurance plan you choose covers you for your first 6 months in the United States.

These travel medical insurance policies are great options for U.S. citizens living outside the United States, covering any medical expenses incurred from unforeseen injuries, accidents, mishaps that occur while they're visiting the U.S. These polices aren't subject to ACA/ Obamacare policies and are not a substitute for regular long-term health insurance policies otherwise applicable for U.S. residents under the ACA, but are strictly for U.S. citizens living abroad and making a short visit to the U.S.

Comprehensive insurance plans ensure that, as an American citizen living abroad and making a brief visit to the United States, you're covered for any unexpected medical expenses. Travel medical insurance gives you peace of mind so you can have a worry-free visit.
