We've put together this comprehensive list of FAQS Visitors Insurance guide to help you understand how to protect yourself while you are traveling abroad.

Visitors Insurance policies are a short-term visitor medical insurance policies which cover you while you are traveling to another country. These policies range from tourist policies meant to cover you from up to 5 days - 3 years to long-term resident policies meant to cover you for up to 2 years. Visitors health insurance policies aren't the only kind of coverage you can get. You can also get coverage including trip cancellation plans and group insurance plans. There are other types of coverages that we discuss in more detail throughout our website. All of our products will be listed under the travel visitors product tab on our website.

Some countries offer free health care to residents and to visitors alike. Most countries unfortunately don't. You could be out hundreds of thousands of dollars if you have to deal with any accidents, injuries, or illnesses while you're within another country's borders. American destinations are particularly tricky. Some health providers won't even see you without a valid insurance policy. Getting a Visitors Insurance plan will help you travel with peace of mind.

If you intend to go mountain climbing you probably need a different policy than if you intend to go shopping.

This reality can exacerbate certain health conditions. It's better to be safe than sorry.

You usually do not need travel coverage for domestic trips, as your current long-term health care will usually suffice. However, it's always a good idea to speak to your provider before embarking on any trip.

Not necessarily. If the destination country has a reciprocal health care agreement with your home country you may be safe, but it's always a good idea to check before you go. In addition, national health services may not cover airlifts and medical evacuations. Airlifts can be expensive!

Some health plans do provide limited global coverage. However, these plans usually only accept claims when you seek care from an in-network doctor or hospital. If there are no in-network providers nearby when something happens you could find yourself facing financial disaster because of gaps in your coverage. We advise to get a separate policy for all trips outside of your home country.

PPO is a Preferred Provider Organization. It’s a large network of doctors, hospitals, urgent care, labs, and clinics where you can go to seek medical treatment. Most comprehensive coverage plans on the market have a PPO. To best utilize your policy, it is recommended to go to a provider within the PPO. Popular PPOs in the United States include UnitedHealthCare, Aetna and First Health.

Most insurance companies offer the flexibility to renew/extend your policy in case your trip duration gets longer. You can see all of our plans that are renewable when you generate a quote. To extend a policy, it takes less than 1 minute to complete online!
