AIG Travel Travel Guard MedEvac Plan
Having tried previously with other insurers to make claims for flight delay costs, and a broken camera, I concluded long ago that it's not worth the bother, as the claims processing is designed to make things as difficult as possible to file a claim. However, having experienced the costs of an emergency eVac for my son (cost $15,000 for a 20 minute helicopter ambulance ride), I knew we could not go away without proper medical cover in place as a precaution. This policy therefore does away with all the cover we no longer have interest in (flight delays, lost baggage etc) and focuses on just the essentials at a cost effective rate. I will definitely use this again.

Generali Global Assistance Standard
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! Our dealings with CSA were handled professionally and courteously until we filed a claim, which was a nightmare. I took the comprehensive policy which included benefits for covered illnesses, including family member illnesses. There was trip cancellation coverage if a covered illness claim was made prior to my departure from home, and trip interruption coverage for covered illnesses after my departure from home. My husband was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection prior to my departure from home. His symptoms worsened after my departure, requiring that he visit an emergency room. At that visit, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer, had emergency cancer surgery, and was hospitalized. I was in Miami, ready to depart on a cruise the next day, so I had to cancel the cruise and return home. I filed a trip interruption claim with CSA, and was shocked when it was denied. They cited a clause in the coverage, "The Sickness or Injury must first commence while your coverage is in effect under the Policy". They denied coverage due to my husband's diagnosis for a urinary tract infection prior to my departure, stating that it was when the bladder cancer treatment commenced. I offered to have my Urologist clarify his medical statement to indicate that there was no cancer testing, diagnosis, or treatment until after my departure from home, but they refused. Even though I had not yet departed on the cruise, it was not covered under the trip cancellation benefit because I had already departed from home. I told them that they were trying to avoid paying the claim based on a fine print technicality in the contract that was unreasonable. The claims representative very rudely said that I should have read the contract before I signed it. I asked that he take it to his supervisor, who also denied the claim. I appealed in twice and was denied. I then requested that InsureMyTrip.com assign an advocate to the case. CSA refused to cooperate with the advocate, citing privacy of medical information. They did not offer to have us sign a medical release to allow the advocate to talk to them. My husband then sent his own release for them to talk to the advocate, along with our third appeal and an updated medical statement from his Urologist. After going through 3 claims adjusters, CSA finally backed down and paid the claim without talking to our assigned advocate. We were very upset at how unprofessional CSA was in handling our claim. They have lost us as a customer, and we recommend that others look elsewhere for their trip insurance needs. InsureMyTrip was excellent... our problem was with CSA. I have been in Customer Service Management for 36 years, and was shocked at the poor level of customer service provided by CSA. My travel companion bought her policy from another company on InsureMyTrip.com, and had her claim paid promptly with no hassle whatsoever.

    Thank you for reaching out to your fellow travelers to share your experience. We certainly want to be accessible to our customers and provide support even it the insurance company determines that coverage does not apply to a particular situation.

    We do not know the details of your claim since access to the medical records was restricted by HIPAA laws. However, it does appear that what you considered a "worsening of his condition" was originally determined to be ongoing treatment for a condition diagnosed prior to departure. Although the condition was first diagnosed as a urinary tract infection, if that same condition later caused you to interrupt your trip to return home early, there would have been no coverage. Fortunately you were able to provide CSA with additional medical documentation to enable them to pay your claim.

    We will share your feedback with your fellow travelers hoping that your unfortunate experience will provide a better understanding of policy terms and conditions. We also invite you to call us for further discussion.

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re very sorry to hear about the circumstances surrounding your claim. We take reviewing and responding to claims very seriously and strive to provide prompt, fair and professional claims processing for all of our customers. The physician statement initially provided with your claim indicated the cancer was diagnosed prior to your trip departure and this resulted in your claim’s initial denial. After ordering medical records, we were able to see this was not the case. We did receive an email from your husband informing us that he was authorizing us to speak with your IMT advocate. Unfortunately we were unable to do so without a signed HIPPA form. We again apologize for your negative experience. If you have any additional questions or concerns please feel free to call us at (800) 348-9505 or via email at csa@csatravelprotection.com.

Didn't have to use it (which is a good thing!) but I'm sure they would have given me 5 star service had I used it!

We bought the optional Cancel for Any Reason coverage and I'm glad we did because we ended up having to cancel our trip. I filed a claim and had the checks in my hands about a week and a half later. Very easy. I will use RoamRight again for all my trips.
