I highly recommend searching for other health plans with other companies. The average rating on this webpage is artificially inflated by people who rate this company highly who only bought the policy and never used it.

I have been told by customer representatives it takes 30 business days for a claim to even begin to be processed. Given that you have to pay upfront and get reimbursed later, this can be problematic if services cost quite a bit of money. Furthermore, I have a claim that I filed over 3 months ago that has yet to be processed. I was told this claim would be "escalated and prioritized" twice and to check in after 15 business days. After waiting those 15 business days, it was revealed that the person I originally spoke with forgot to actually prioritize the claim.

This company has recently been the victim of a cyberattack and they are claiming that as a reason for the delays in claims for good measures. However, now is not a good time to buy a policy as time will only tell how long they will use this hack and CoVid-19 as an excuse for horrible customer service. In my opinion, the lack of cybersecurity measures given by this company not only delays their capacity to provide quality service, but also puts customer's personal information including banking details for reimbursement at risk for hackers.

If you read the fine print of most of their plans, you will see that many things such as pre-existing conditions, mental health coverage, and many other illnesses and conditions are not covered in this plan. This plan gives its policyholders a false sense of security.

I would steer clear from this company. I have experienced nothing but utter incompetence since opening my policy with them and actually using it by filing claims.

The website was down for weeks and phone calls were not answered. When I did reach them, I was promised an email with a link to file a claim. They could not send the form to file by email or USPS. I never received an email. Very poor service and disastrous that they had no backup plan for an IT failure of this magnitude.

A change in the cruise itinerary dis embarkation city was caused by the Covid-19 situation, yet the insurance company totally disregarded this as a legitimate reason for the claim. They only covered the additional costs (most of it had been reimbursed by the cruise line) in the change of airfare. No additional expenses that were incurred because of the change in flight to return home were covered. They claimed that I could not file as flight delay (it was a totally different flight from a totally different city) since I arrived home less than 12 hours from the original flight time (it was 11 hours).

The plan was easy to purchase. Though we did not file a claim, I feel that the cost paid for this plan was very reasonable and it provided good coverage (if we had needed to file a claim).

Not Satisfied!!! I am thankful I did not need to file a claim because I was unable to contact the company about a question prior to my trip. It says a lot if a company limits your ability to contact them. I will know in the future to contact customer service prior to purchasing insurance.

Travel insurance is essential and we always purchase immediately after making a payment on our trip. But please fully understand what you are buying and what coverage is important to your needs

As I didn't experience any need to make a claim, I can't speak to that part of the service, but it was easy and reasonable to get the coverage I needed to comply with my visa requirements.

The plan was fine as described, but I would have preferred a "cancel for any reason" plan, even if it cost a bit more. Fortunately, I did not need to file a claim against this insurance policy.
