Question:


What does waiver of pre-existing condition mean? I plan to travel on Sept 20 to Europe. I was born on 07 Oct 1941. I have pre-existing health conditions but have been controlled for several years. I plan to get a comprehensive travel insurance.
- LuzvismindaG,
06/07/2017

Answer:


Most Comprehensive Plans will offer a waiver of pre-existing conditions if you meet the following conditions: You purchase the policy within 10 to 21 days of making your first trip payment; insure ALL prepaid non-refundable expenses prior to your departure date; and be medically fit to travel the day you purchase the policy. If the reason you are canceling, interrupting or seeking medical coverage is related to pre-existing conditions there will be no coverage, unless you have the waiver. A Pre-Existing Condition is any treatment, diagnostic tests or exams, any recommendations for diagnostic test or exams, or any adjustments in medication up or down within the pre-existing condition period stated (depending on the company, 60 – 180 days prior to the effective date).

Answer:


When viewing quotes, please click on the amount listed under Trip Cancellation to view the covered reasons for Trip Cancellation. In this window that opens up, most policies will include wording regarding Single Supplement Coverage. Please see below: Single Supplement Benefits will be paid, up to the Maximum Benefit Amount, for the additional cost incurred as a result of a change in the per person occupancy rate for Prepaid Travel Arrangements if a Traveling Companion’s or Family Member’s Trip is canceled for a covered reason and You do not cancel Your Trip. These benefits will not duplicate any other benefits payable under the Policy or any coverage(s) attached to the Policy. Please keep in mind, benefits can be state specific and the wording can vary depending on where you reside.
