Pre-existing conditions Insurance Forum

pre existing condition insurance forum
Hi,
I want to know the details of the Visitors Secure Plan A health insurance for visitors. In particular the exclusions per pre-existing disease as mentioned in the final check list page.

Thanks,
Dr. Akhtar


Dear Dr. Akhtar,
The coverage for pre-existing conditions can be very confusing. It is confusing because the plan, technically, does NOT cover pre-existing conditions. That is, if there are required regular treatments or medications that are needed for a pre-existing medical conditions, these is NOT covered. However, if a person is under 70 years of age, you can have coverage for what is called "acute onset" of a pre-existing condition. For plan A, the amount covered for that would be up to $50,000. The emergency situation would be covered in the same way that any other condition is covered (it is a fixed plan, so each medical expense has a set limit that will be paid out by the insurance company and you will have to pay the difference for each). Notice that plan B, covers up to $75,000 (the same as the maximum of the plan) and plans C and D cover up to only $100,000 maximum).

You may wonder what is considered "acute onset" as opposed to any other expression of the pre-existing condition. Well, the "acute onset" clause of the plan is meant to cover a condition that is well regulated by medication and/or treatment or any other reasonable means, but the insured has an unexpected and acute emergency due to that condition that threatens their life or overall wellbeing (maybe their life is not in danger, but they may go blind or lose a limb -- that would also count). It must be "acute" in the sense that the situation cannot wait until you return home to take care of the situation.

Note that this coverage is only available for persons under 70 years of age. If the person purchases the policy at age 69 and hits their birthday during the trip, they do lose this additional coverage when they are 70 years (although they get to pay as a 69 year old for the whole trip).
I hope this clarifies the coverage on the Visitor's Secure plan offered by Tokio-Marine HCC. Do let us know if you have any other question or concerns.

Hi,
I'm booking travel insurance for my dad, from UK to USA, Aug 30- Sep 8. Is there a list of pre-existing conditions and time limits? He takes pills for high blood pressure.

Hi,
Hi looking for a travel insurance for an 83 year old female traveling from the Philippines to USA from June 23 to July 14. I am looking for a plan that also covers pre-existing conditions.

Thank you,
Katriz


Dear Katriz,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance! We are always striving to provide the best and most options for international travelers. In that light, we have recently added this policy by Trawick International. It is unique in offering coverage for "acute onset" of pre-existing conditions for up to $25,000 for persons over 70 and under 90 years of age. The price of the policy for younger travelers makes it an economical option for coverage of acute onset of pre-existing conditions up to the medical maximum for those under 70 years. Â The policy is available from any state in the US or can be purchased from abroad. Â This plan will cost you about $330 with a $50,000 maximum and a $250 deductible (you can choose higher deductible and it will cost you less) for the dates of your trip.

You can Buy Safe Travels USA Comprehensive Insurance policy. Please let us know if we can help you in regarding to the Safe Travels USA plan details.

Another option is the fixed plan offered by this same company. Â It is called Safe Travels USA Diamond and can be purchased for up to $50,000 and has the same limitations on coverage as above for the comprehensive plan, but remember that it is a fixed option and so has caps on individual medical expenses (as well as the maximums listed above). Â However, offers the best fixed coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions for persons over 70. Â This plan will cost about $112 for the same dates with a maximum of $50,000 and a deductible of $200.

Hi,
Can you please explain further the difference between fixed and comprehensive? And is this the best plan you got for 83 year old female traveling from the Philippines to USA?

Thank you,
Katriz


Dear Katriz,
I always recommend a comprehensive plan over a fixed one (so the first, more expensive one). This is because the coverage is more complete. Here's how it works: You pay your deductible (whatever you choose at the time of purchase), then you pay 20% of the next $5000 in expenses (so up to an additional $1,000) and then the plan pays up to the maximum of the plan. In the case of a pre-existing condition, the maximum limit is reduced, usually to $25,000.

In a fixed plan, the company pays a set amount for each medical expense (after you pay the deductible). If you are charged more than they pay, then you pay the difference for each expense. So, the fixed plan will pay something for everything, but it may not pay 100% of anything. You cannot calcite an "out-of-pocket" expense with that plan like you can with a comprehensive plan because you will need an itemized bill from the provider and they will only pay a certain amount for each item.
I hope that clears it up. There is an example and comparison on our website here: Fixed and Comprensive insurance plan benefits

Hi there,
I have a son aged 20 who is looking to study in US He is an Australian Citizen. Travelling to USA college in July 2018. He is a type 1 diabetic and needs cover for that pre-existing condition. What companies offer the best coverage. He will hope to be in USA college for two to four years. I am still a little confused in regards to Pre-existing conditions and acute onset.

What would this actually mean for a type one diabetic with really good control?
We are not looking for coverage for his ongoing management drugs, etc that can easily be managed from Australia. What are examples of acute onset with Diabetes?
As a couple of scenarios what if:
He was discovered in a distressed state that he could not help himself due to low glucose levels and was sent to hospital for treatment.
He was sent to hospital with vomiting and diarrhoea and then as part of their management plan the hospital treated him differently because he was a diabetic? This initial enquiry is about a 20 year old healthy type 1 diabetic male,from Australia, who has been offered a college place in the USA for 1- 2 years commencing July this year.

Thank you,
Sam Camp


Dear Sam,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your travel health insurance needs!

Pre-existing condition coverage is only available for acute onset or sudden recurrence. Routine maintenance for the condition is not covered.
Here is a plan that is comprehensive and covers pre-existing conditions:
PATRIOT AMERICA PLUS from IMG:
You can get all the info about the plan on this page.
To buy this plan, please use the below BUY link: Buy patriot america plus

Acute onset as I understand is a sudden recurrence of the condition that is unexpected and needs urgent care treatment. I might not be able to give specific examples. Maybe something like a heart attack or a stroke that is unexpected and has occurred due to the condition that is existing.

For a healthy person who is not having any issues and the condition is in total control, they don't have to worry.

We mention the details to make sure that we are giving the right information and therefore I wanted to tell you that only acute onset is covered.

The incident that you have mentioned here about the low glucose level might be an acute onset but I cannot confirm that. This is something that a doctor would do and the doctor's report would say if it is acute onset or not.

If your son has any specific requirements for the health insurance from the college, you can take a look at our student plans by getting quote here: student insurance plans
These plans have a waiting period of either 6 months or 12 months for pre-existing condition coverage.

Please let us know if we can help you in any further.

Dear American Visitor Insurance,
Is osteoporosis a "pre-existing condition" ?
Thank you,
Darlene


Dear Darlene,
Yes. Anything you have been diagnosed with, are being treated for or have with reasonable medical certainty before the policy begins is considered pre-existing. However, if you break a bone, I don't think (even if you were at higher risk) that would be excluded from coverage since the break was ultimately caused by a fall or accident. The only time pre-existing conditions are a main concern is when they can cause an emergency by themselves, like a heart condition leading to a heart attack or a diabetic having some emergency due to their diabetes.

Please let us know if we can help you in any further.

Dear American Visitor Insurance,
Does any of your policies cover pre exisiting conditions ?
Thank you,
Barkh


Dear Barkh,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your travel health insurance needs! Some policies that we offer cover "acute onset" of a pre-existing condition. So, first of all, the condition should be stable and not worsening. Further, regular medication or treatment that is required for the conditions is not covered. However, some policies will cover a sudden and unexpected emergency due to that medical condition.

Another important factor in this coverage is the age of the insured. There is pretty good coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions for persons under 70 years of age. If you are over 70, there is one fixed and one comprehensive option called Safe Travels USA Diamond (fixed) or Safe Travels USA Comprehensive (comprehensive).

You can review all these plans (fixed and comprehensive) using this page on our website: Pre-existing plans.
If we can help you with your specific case, please tell us your visitor's age and how long you need the insurance.

Thank you,
Anita


Dear Anita,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your travel health insurance needs!
You can go for any of these 2 plans. The reason is that these 2 plans have coverage for acute onset of pre-existing condition for people above 70 and also 80. But you can buy them only for policy maximum of $50,000. If you need a higher policy maximum, there are plans that can give you that but there is no coverage for acute onset of pre-existing condition for people above 80 and reduced coverage available for people above 70.

Thank you,
Howard


Dear Howard,
Thanks for contacting us with your inquiry!
Travel health insurance plans are for sudden and unexpected situations. Similarly they cover any acute onset or sudden recurrence of a pre-existing condition but have specific conditions under which pre-existing conditions are covered. Any preventive care work is not covered by the short term travel health insurance plans.

  • It will cover all the pre-existing condition like Heart Issues ?
    Answer: The plan covers acute onset of pre-existing conditions up to a maximum of $25,000.
  • Also, what will be the coverage If I increase my deductible to the highest level 5000?
    Answer: The coverage level is not affected by deductible. The deductible is what your visitor will have to pay (for any medical expenses) before the insurance begins to pay on their behalf.
  • Does it need any pre-approvals ?
    Answer:In general, no. There are no pre-approvals necessary. For somethings, like hospital stay, you must tell them as soon as possible. Also, if a doctor orders a particularly expensive test (MRI), you should call for pre-certification, just in case. But you can go to any doctor, including specialist without a referral.

Hi,
What is acute onset of pre existing condition?
Thank you,
Neehaa


Dear Neehaa,
Thank you for your email. Acute Onset of Pre-existing Condition means a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence of a pre-existing condition(s) which occurs spontaneously and without advance warning either in the form of physician recommendations or symptoms, is of short duration, is rapidly progressive, and requires urgent care. The Acute Onset of a Pre-existing Condition(s) must occur after the certificate effective date. Treatment must be obtained within 24 hours of the sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence. A pre-existing condition that is a chronic or congenital condition or that gradually becomes worse over time will not be considered Acute Onset. This benefit does not include coverage for known, scheduled, required, or expected medical care, drugs or treatments existent or necessary prior to the certificate effective date.
Claims for acute onset or recurrence of pre-exiting condition will be determined by the provider and the claims department of the insurance company.
If you are looking for plans that will cover acute onset, use this link : Pre-existing Coverage Plan
Please let us know if we can help you further.

Hello,
Are Chronic health conditions covered, ie Atrial Fibrilation or Ulcerated colitis
Thank you,
Sonia


Dear Sonia,
No. They are not. You can get some conditions covered for "acute onset" of a preexisting condition, but a condition must be stable and fully controlled. Also, the "new" situation must be "unexpected" not a worsening of a chronic condition.

Hi,
I need insurance for my parents who are here in Australia. Their Indian insurance plan will expire soon and they are going to stay for one more month and I am looking for something that covers my father's situation. He is 63 years old and he went through a hospital treatment for 5 days in the hospital. This was some infection in blood. He is also diabetic and has heart problems. I want a plan that covers his pre existing condition and his recent hospital treatment and any follow up check up for the same. It will be great if I get a plan that meets my requirements.
Thank you,
Geethai


Dear Geethai,
Thank you for contacting us for your insurance needs.
I know that the insurance company will not cover for any treatment taken that occurred before the policy became effective. However if you need a plan for your father for future needs, this plan is a good comprehensive plan that covers pre existing condition up to the age of 70 for Non US citizens traveling outside their home country. This is the plan that we recommend for your father.
PATRIOT AMERICA PLUS from IMG:
Patriot America Plus Logo
The Patriot insurance plan offered by IMG is specifically designed for short term visitors to USA and is a hugely popular choice among tourists to America.
This company has recently made a new policy which covers "acute onset of pre-existing conditions" for persons under 70 years of age. That policy is called Patriot America Plus and is in all other ways the same as the Patriot America policy.
You can get all information about Patriot America Plus insurance by reviewing the website. You can buy the Patriot America Plus insurance policy online.

Feel free to call or email us with any questions or comments you may have. Regards,

Hello,
I am planning to call my parents from India to USA for 5 months. My father regularly visits doctor in India for his spine problem. which health insurance policy would be better to continue the treatment for his problem in USA too? I have seen Patriot America Plus as an option. I would like to know if there is any other better policy that will be helpful to me.
Thank you,

Dear Lakshman,
Thank you for your inquiry and allowing us at American Visitor Insurance to help you with your insurance needs. We offer several insurance options for individuals that are specifically worried about coverage of pre-existing conditions. Coverage for pre-existing conditions is limited to what is called an "acute onset" of a pre-existing condition. The term “Acute Onset of a Pre-Existing Condition(s)” shall mean a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence of a Pre-existing Condition(s) which occurs spontaneously and without advance warning either in the form of Physician recommendations or symptoms, is of short duration, is rapidly progressive, and requires urgent care. The Acute Onset of a Pre-existing Condition(s) must occur after the effective date of the policy. Treatment must be obtained within 24 hours of the sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence. A Pre-existing Condition that is a chronic or congenital condition or that gradually becomes worse over time will not be considered Acute Onset. This benefit does not include coverage for known, scheduled, required, or expected medical care, drugs or treatments existent or necessary prior to the Effective Date of coverage.
So with your dad's case, his regular visit to the doctor for his condition will not be covered by any of our insurance plans.
The Patriot America Plus plan covers people for new sickness and emergency and covers for "acute onset" of pre-existing condition.

questionHi,
What does 6 months waiting period mean? If we go to the hospital for precondition then it won't be covered for 6 months? Or would it look back 6 months from when we went the hospital n see if we were ever in the hospital for it? If we weren't then they would cover?
Also if we need the dr for blood test or precription it would not cover for 6 months ? Is there a waiver for creditable insurance if you have that would the 6 months would be waived?
Thanks,
Sam


Hello,
That's a great question and it does depend on the company and their definitions and limitations. I have put their verbiage below:
Pre-existing Condition Limitation:
Benefits are not available for any services received on or within 180 days after the Eligibility Date of an Insured Person, if those services are related to a Pre-existing Condition as defined in the Definitions section.
This limitation does not apply to the Medical Evacuation Benefit, the Repatriation of Remains Benefit and to the Bedside Visit Benefit.

Here's how they define a pre-existing condition:
Preexisting Condition means any disease, illness, sickness, malady or condition which was diagnosed or treated by a legally qualified physician prior to the effective date of coverage with consultation, advice or treatment by a legally qualified physician occurring within 180 days prior to the Coverage Date for the insured.

So, something pre-existing but more than 6 months before the start date of the policy (unless requiring on going treatment) will NOT be considered a pre-existing condition. AND treatment on pre-existing conditions will not be covered for the first 6 months of the policy. That would apply to ALL medical costs (medicines, dr visit, blood test, etc) EXCEPT emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, and bedside visit benefits (as stated in their policy).

Let us know if you have any further questions.

2. I, an Indian Citizen, am diabetic and hyper Tension . I take medicines for both, and both are under good control. I have also Permanent Implanted Pace make (Medtronic, US make) since last 5 years.
Please inform me what exact illness and circumstances are not covered / fully covered in both Insurance policies offered (a) Visitors care - Heart care Plus and (b) Patriot Platinum Comprehensive
3. What is the exact difference between the two policies ?
4. Is a visit to medical doctor in US covered under Heart Care Plus policy?
5. If any blood tests are carried out in US, will they be covered under Policy?

Thanks,
Nalin & Amit


Hello,
Hi! I chatted with Amit earlier today and am sending this to both of you in response. It looks like a colleague did respond to Nalin, but on a different email address, so I will try this one. Please see answers beneath your questions:

1. What is meant by remark ? : With purchase of "Heart Care Plus" rider provides $2,500 in event of heart attack or stroke even if due to a pre-existing condition.
The "Heart Care Plus" is a rider for which you pay extra on the policy.
It covers only $2,500 in the event of a heart attack or stroke. As I explained to Amit, this would NOT cover any emergency needs arising from diabetes or other pre-existing condition.

2. I, an Indian Citizen, am diabetic and hyper Tension . I take medicines for both, and both are under good control. I have also Permanent Implanted Pace make (Medtronic, US make) since last 5 years.
Please inform me what exact illness and circumstances are not covered / fully covered in both Insurance policies offered (a) Visitors care - Heart care Plus and (b) Patriot Platinum Comprehensive
As mentioned above, the Visitor's Care plan WITH the Heart Care plus only covers $2,500 in the event of heart attack or stroke. The Patriot Platinum plan also covers only $2,500 for any pre-existing condition. So this amount would be available for any emergency due to any pre-existing condition.

3. What is the exact difference between the two policies ?
The Visitor's care is a fixed plan and the Patriot Platinum is comprehensive. Please see the links to the brochures (below) for details.

4. Is a visit to medical doctor in US covered under Heart Care Plus policy?
Doctor visits if you are sick are covered by either plan. The Visitor's Care policy only pays $85 for doctor visit (subject to deductible). The Patriot plan would cover it subject to deductible and coinsurance (10 or 20% of the first $5,000 in expenses).

5. If any blood tests are carried out in US, will they be covered under Policy?
Any blood tests, X-rays, procedures would be covered for any covered illness as prescribed by a doctor. The Visitor's Care plan is subject to individual medical expense limits (see brochure for details), where the Patriot plan is always only subject to one time deductible and one time coinsurance.

Here are links for the brochures and links to purchase and/or get a free quote on the policies:
Visitors Care Logo
You can get all information about Visitor’s Care insurance plan by reading the plan brochure. You can buy the Visitor’s Care insurance policy online.

Patriot Platinum Logo

Since both plans are offered by the same insurance company, they use the same PPO. Note that you are not required to use the PPO, but get some direct and indirect benefits from using it (the coinsurance is only 10% if the PPO is used, but 20% outside it; indirectly get benefit of negotiated pricing).

Dear Yue,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your travel health insurance needs! We do not have a list of diseases that we cover. Our traveler's health insurance primarily covers any new illnesses and emergency. If your concern is for pre-existing condition, we have plans that cover "acute onset" of pre existing condition. Coverage for pre-existing conditions is limited to what is called an "acute onset" of a pre-existing condition, however we have identified the plans that have some coverage for preexisting conditions for individuals traveling out of their home country. Please note that some diseases are excluded from coverage like HIV and cancer, so consult the list of exclusions of the plans to be sure your condition is not excluded.

questionHello,
Does all the suggested policies for providing coverage for pre existing conditions cover high blood pressure as a pre existing condition without limit of look back period? And if they have a look back period, does it mean that it will only cover high blood pressure that within this period? My mom has high blood pressure for 10 years.
Thanks,
Albert


Dear Albert,
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your needs!
Pre-existing conditions are medical ailments for which a person has been diagnosed, is being treated for or has before the start of the insurance policy.
Since these policies provide coverage for pre-existing conditions, High blood pressure coverage will be available as a pre-existing condition.
All of these policies are Comprehensive policies and they have a look back period of 3 years or 36 months for the pre existing condition coverage.
When the look back period for the plan is 3 years, the conditions for which the treatment has been received in the time period of 3 years prior to the insurance coverage effective date will not be covered.

Regards,
Customer care
+1 (877) 340 7910
questionReally appreciate your answer.
I am a little bit confused about the 'look back period' you mentioned. Does this mean the plan will only cover the high blood pressure that appeared within last 3 years? My mom's has been in high blood pressure for over 10 years (more than 3-year limit). So the plan will not cover it, right? Maybe my understanding about the 'look back period' is wrong.:)
Albert


Dear Albert,
A "look back" period is used to define what is considered a pre-existing condition. If you had some medical issue longer ago than the look back period (and you don't have it anymore), then it would NOT be considered pre-existing any longer and would be covered by the plan as any other illness. The problem with chronic illness, of course, is that you have it your whole life. In that case, you have to get a policy that WILL specifically cover "acute" or sudden onset of the pre-existing condition (it will not cover regular medication or regularly needed treatment).
That is why the policies I mention will work in case your mother would have some emergency due to her pre-existing condition. The look back period is not relevant to the coverage of "acute" or "sudden" onset of the pre-existing condition.
I hope that clears it up for you.

My wife is 57 yrs old and she is travelling between USA and Europe for 6 months. She needs coverage for acute onset of pre existing conditions. Can you suggest a plan that can cover her in both locations and provide coverage for pre existing conditions?
Thanks,

Dear Sir,
Your wife can purchase the Atlas America plan from HCCMIS. She can enter US as the destination country. This will cover her both inside and outside of US as long as she is travelling outside of her home country.
Alternatively, she can purchase two separate policies one for her stay in the USA and another for her trip outside US. This will work out cheaper as the coverage rates in the USA are higher than the outbound travel rates.
