Fortunately, we didn't need to use the plan but it was peace of mind to have it. Since we didn't need to file any claim I can't speak to how good the company is at processing claims, but I read reviews before I purchased it and they were all positive.

It is very hard to review an insurance provider if one has never used their services. I paid for 5 weeks of coverage for my daughter going to Spain, and she never needed to use the insurance, so I cannot vouch for the service. I am glad I purchased it.

I picked the coverage that I would most need and the deductibles I wanted. The cost of this insurance was very reasonable and did not have to purchase insurance that I know I would not need. Fortunately there was no need for is to use the insurance but it is essential to have especially the medical. You never know what can happen. I would purchase this again.

For myself key advantage of this plan as compared to those offered by international companies is the coverage of coronary care services.The option of trip cancellation insurance for non-USA customers would be also appreciated.

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.
