Visitor Insurance provides various benefits to a visitor when he is away from his home country. These benefits range from acquiring medical attention in case of an unexpected health emergency, using emergency medical evacuation services, natural disaster coverage, return of minor children coverage and many others (surprising) benefits. However, when it comes to buying medications at a pharmacy, visitor insurance works in a different way than regular domestic health insurance, especially in USA. With domestic healthcare systems the insured can purchase medications with a copay at the pharmacy, but insured visitors have to pay upfront from their pocket and submit claims for reimbursement.
Sometimes visitor insurance riders are purchased in order to receive additional coverage on top of the coverage already provided by insurance policy. They are optional and commonly, known as Optional Riders and comes with additional charges. This blog post explores some of the commonly bought riders.
