Yes, I liked the plan and will do so again in the near future. The most important part of the plan is the protection for the cost of the trip, in case of having to cancel.

I purchased a plan through CSA for a cruise I was taking with my 80+ year old parents in this past October. My parents also purchased travel insurance through insuremytrip, but with another carrier. I've purchased trip insurance a dozen or more times in the past and luckily, never had to make a claim.
Well this time, lo and behold, my poor mother fell and broke her hip 12 days prior to our departure date. I immediately started my claim. I had a difficult time getting my mother's orthopedic surgeon's office to complete CSA's Physician Statement form because the office said it was a HIPAA violation - regardless of the fact that my mother had signed a release specifically allowing them to disclose that information to CSA. Since my mother had also purchased insurance and her surgeon DID complete her carrier's Physician's Statement form, I submitted a copy of that one to CSA and asked if they would take it instead of their own form and apparently they did because my claim was subsequently approved and I was reimbursed the entire cruise fare and my airfare!
I must admit I was worried for a time because I got the feeling they were not going to approve the claim. I am completely satisfied with the process, which understandably, was a lot of paperwork and several hoops to jump through, but I would not hesitate in the future to purchase another plan through CSA....although they may not be keen on insuring somebody in the future that they had to pay out on. I'll have to test that out.

The insurance was not needed, but the peace of mind made it worth it. There were three medical emergencies on my trip. One required a helicopter evacuation. Another required a passenger be hospitalized in one port. The third was taken off the ship in another port by ambulance. I am pleased that I had coverage that was not needed.

We have used CSA on every trip we take. Fortunately we have needed to file any claims but its good peace of mind. Because our anniversary is on Nov. 22nd we normally travel at the tail end of hurricane season,

Thanks for your service

My wife required hospitalization and medical repatriation from the Caribbean. The service provided to arrange transportation home was first rate and they were in contact with us daily until we arrived home.
A significant part of the cost incurred is on a reimbursement basis (the hospital required upfront payment for all medical expenses) and I've just begun the process to be reimbursed for that, so I can't yet comment on the speed and completeness of the reimbursement.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
After many months we finally have received all payments due from CSA. The problem didn't lie with CSA but with my wife's primary health insurer. The travel insurance is secondary so we had to submit claims through her health insurance and receive EOBs showing what the primary insurance paid before CSA would reimburse for the rest of the expenses. The primary insurer asked for additional documentation about a month after receiving the claim and then apparently misplaced my response for several months until I called to ask what was going on. The person I spoke to found the paperwork quickly and did whatever was needed to process the claim. When I finally had all the payment from the primary insurer I submitted the EOBs to CSA and they quickly and completely paid what my wife's medical insurance didn't cover.

There was one element of the claims experience where I wasn't completely satisfied with CSA's resolution of the claim. We were on a cruise when my wife got sick and we had to leave the ship at that time. The stated Trip Interruption coverage said they would reimburse either to get me home or to rejoin the originally scheduled trip (my wife's medical evacuation was paid up front by CSA). Since most of our luggage was still on the ship and our car was at the port in New York City, I met the ship when it arrived in New York to retrieve the luggage and car. CSA wouldn't reimburse my train ticket to New York since I had gone home (with my wife) to Pennsylvania before heading to New York. They claimed my trip ended at that point even though I had to meet the ship in New York (had to continue my trip from that point) in order to retrieve my luggage and car. In the grand scheme the amount involved wasn't large ($130 or so) so after the claims agent's supervisor reiterated their rejection of that part of the claim I didn't pursue the matter further.

But overall I was satisfied with the resolution of the other elements of the claim and the speed with which it was completed. I've purchased the same policy for our upcoming trip this holiday season.
