Visitors Insurance 101 - Importance of Travel Medical Insurance For Foreign Visitors
Welcome back to the Visitors Insurance Blog! This blog will breakdown what is visitor insurance and why it's important to have visitors coverage when traveling outside of your home country. We offer both short-term and long-term travel medical insurance plans that cover you for any new sickness or illness that can occur after the policy has started. This includes doctor visits, urgent care, emergency room, hospitalization, inpatient, outpatient, covid-19 visitors coverage and more. Visitors Insurance plans will cover you for any travel outside of your home country. Your home country is defined by where you live and work and what country you hold a passport in.
For foreign travelers coming to the United States, its very important to have American visitors insurance plans as healthcare costs increase every year in the United States and a quick doctor visit or emergency room visit can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars that you will have to pay for out of pocket. Having a visitors insurance plan will give you peace of mind while you are traveling, exploring and visiting your loved ones abroad.

I already have health insurance where I live. Why can't I just use my existing coverage?
If you have domestic health insurance, you will need to call your insurance company as most domestic plans will only cover you in your home country. Globally, you will have limited coverage or need to meet your out of network deductible and have limited coverage. Most domestic plans also don't have global PPO (preferred provider organization) networks which will require you to meet a higher deductible and you may not be 100% coverage as you would in-network. We recommend all travelers purchase a Visitors Insurance plan for coverage for any trip outside of your home country. We offer plans from 5 days up to 3 years that you can customize for your travel needs.
Which visitor insurance is best?
When it comes to the best visitors insurance plans, we recommend our clients to choose a comprehensive coverage plan with a company and their claim offices based in the United States. There are cheaper options available from traveler’s home country, however, these plans are not comprehensive coverage plans and are reimbursement plans designed to only cover a portion of the bill. The out of pocket costs are unknown and these plans can get expensive with 1-2 claims. To learn more, visit Visitors Insurance and you can request a quote.
Is it easy to submit visitor's claims?
Insurance companies have all of their claim forms available online. You will have to fill out a basic questionnaire, include your policy details and email claims directly for processing.
