Nationwide Mutual Insurance Essential
The claim was filed October 25th with 9 attachments, I received an email asking for more information Nov 12th, which i responded to Nov 13th with 4 more attached documents, and got an confirmation email. Since i never heard anything again and the website only shows "RECEIVED" I called on Dec 7th. In the call I was told they sent me an email asking for more information, so i informed them i had responded the following day. She put me on hold and said i would receive a call in 20 minutes to finish up the claim. No call back. I called again with similar results, (being told i would get a call by end of day) on Dec 14th, 15th, 18th, 20th and 27th. Still nothing...they have all said, "I've upgraded your claim to priority and sent it directly to the manager." Now I'm being told they have a 2 week re-review period and I'll receive an email.

DO NOT purchase a plan from Nationwide if there is any chance you might actually use it.
My claim isn't even much, about $400 on a plan that cost $163.

Luckily, we had no medical problems this trip but the company provided excellent summaries and reminders of all the coverage we might need. Excellent and necessary for peace of mind!

I’m so glad I didn’t need to use this coverage while vacationing in Egypt, but I felt assured in case of emergency.

I thought I was going to have to file a claim because my friend who was traveling with me son passed. You rep was so compassionate and understanding. She sent me everything I needed to file the claim but told me that due to the circumstances the airline could possibly refund. I did not know this. My friend was not able to go on the trip and the airline refunded her immediately. I really appreciate your representative. She was awesome! I will use this travel insurance again. Outstanding customer service.

This policy satisfied the requirements of the tour company I was going to use. Fortunately, I did not have to make a claim, but I felt good that I would be covered if something did happen. And the price seemed comparable to similar policies. Customer service was very responsive to my questions.
