Good service and fair price. It was necessary because medicare does not pay outside the states. Thankfully we did not have to use it.

Thankfully, I didn't need to file a claim with the plan that I purchased. I did appreciate the ease with which I purchased the plan and being able to access it during my trip in case I needed it.

It would be of value to have information regarding the handling of claims. This policy is excess over other health coverages and I am curious about actual claim experience and procedures that are followed. I am a former casualty claim manager and also have work experience with group medical claims.

Not sure what the point of a review is when we did not need to make a claim, but taking out the insurance was certainly easy.

As I didn't have to make a claim, I cannot comment on how that would have been dealt with. I would use your company again, as the people I contacted were very helpful and the information was very comprehensive.

Nice to have the protection in place if it had been needed. Very easy process to initiate the plan ahead of the trip. Just gives you that peace of mind that you want to have when traveling internationally.
