I did not have to file a claim or use the policy but the peace of mind having it while I was abroad is priceless. Of course, had I needed to invoke any of the coverage, the ease or difficulty of doing so could change my opinion.

We never had to use the insurance, which is a good thing but it was nice knowing we were covered. I believe the price was right and the plan provided all of the phone numbers we may need in case of an emergency. Thanks

Claims for this plan are managed by a 3rd party "Coordinated Benefit Plans". My claim has been processing now for almost 3 months, and they do not have any timeline on when they claim will be adjudicated. They say it's because of a high volume of claims, and anytime they ask you for new documentation, it resets the clock all over again. CBPs customer service is terrible, they don't commit to anything and don't resolve anything either. You just have to sit and wait, meanwhile if your charges are on a credit card, you have to eat the interest costs. Please avoid any policy managed by CBP at all costs.

Thankful that we didn't have to file a claim, but it was nice to know we had the coverage "just in case".

Insurance is a must to have as a back up plan in case we were exposed to COVID
