Visitor insurance is recommended to buy before a traveler visits another country. It offers protection against medical emergency, trip interruptions, emergency dental, natural disaster, repatriation of remains, accidental death and dismemberment, loss of baggage, physical therapy etc. that may arise during the trip. However, different plans have different coverage. Visitors insurance starts the very next day of the purchase or any specified future date.
Three important factors for Visitors Health Insurance Plan
In countries like the United States where the medical expenses can be very high, possessing visitors insurance is like safeguarding oneself from financial and mental trauma. With so many plans available in the market, it may be quite confusing which plan to purchase. Below are three important factors to be considered with respect to this purchase:
How does Visitor Health Insurance works?
Any traveler holding a visitors health insurance can use it in case of unforeseen medical emergency. Most of the visitor health insurance plans have contracts with medical providers (hospitals and doctors). A traveler may choose to visit any hospital or doctor belonging to the plan’s network. All visitors health insurance plans have deductibles and some may have co-pay.
How to avail medical treatment:
In all these cases, the traveler would need to show his proof of visitor health insurance i.e. his insurance identification card. It is up to the medical care provider’s (hospital/doctor) discretion whether a co-pay is charged or else a deposit is asked from the patient at the time of medical service provided.
