The HTH Worldwide Travel Insurance TravelGap Voyager plan resembles the TravelGap Excursion plan. It is a single-trip travel medical insurance plan that covers trips up to 180 days in length. One large difference is this travel medical plan does not require you to have primary health insurance in force to be eligible for coverage.
Also unlike the TravelGap Excursion plan, the TravelGap Voyager includes a pre-existing condition look back period of 180 days. This means that in the event of a claim, the travel insurance company will exclude coverage for anything that is related medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment within the 180 days prior to the effective date of coverage.
If you are looking for a plan with a little flexibility in the level of medical coverage you have while traveling, you’ll probably be interested in this plan. The TravelGap Voyager plan allows you to select your medical limit prior to purchasing the plan. It also allows you to choose your plan deductible to best fit your out of pocket budget.
The plan also includes the Direct Billing program. If you choose a provider within the HTH network and inform them 24 hours or more prior to the appointment, (or use HTH representatives to make the appointment for you) they may pay for your medical care up front. This can help you avoid a claims process.
Along with offering coverage for your medical needs while traveling, the TravelGap Voyager plans has limited coverage if your trip is shortened due to covered medical reasons, a terrorist event or an imminent threat to your personal safety. This coverage will help to offset the cost of changing an airline or ground transportation ticket, of the same class, to return home. You will find all the details in the full certificate of the plan.
You must not have yet departed on your trip to be eligible for coverage. This coverage is only available prior to your departure date.
Travel Medical plans offer specific coverage needed while traveling abroad. These plans are available to travelers who are leaving their home country and require medical insurance to fill the gaps in their primary health insurance coverage.
