Why do I need travel insurance?

Traveling anywhere can be risky. You purchase travel protection because your domestic plan probably doesn't cover you abroad. Travel insurance is there to help pay out-of-pocket expenses due unexpected incidents such as baggage loss and medical emergencies.

What is a deductible?

A deductible is a way for the insurance company to reduce claims and your premium. If your plan has a $200 deductible, you pay the first $200 of expenses and then the insurance company picks up the rest/ The higher the deductible, the lower the cost and vice versa.

When is coverage in-force?

For most of the plans we offer, coverage is in-force once you have been approved by the insurance carrier, premium payment has been received and they have sent you written approval. For single trip plans, you can purchase and pay for coverage right on-line. If you purchase the Patriot Travel Insurance coverage online, the International Medical Group (IMG) will then send you confirmation by both email and mail or courier.

Should I pre-certify health expenses?

It is recommended that you, your spouse and/or the hospital pre-certify claims (especially large ones) before treatment if possible. But, don't put off any treatment that is medical necessary and urgent. The key is you want to know that the expense is covered if possible before you get it done. Most of the time it is just common sense. Many of the plans offer a toll free or collect call number  on a card or certificate that you or your medical facility can call to pre-certify claims and coverage, so make sure you have it with you at all time.

I am already living or traveling abroad, can I still get coverage?

Yes, if you require travel medical,  it is usually not too late to get coverage if you have already traveled or are already living outside your country of citizenship. Of course, if you already have a claim before being covered or a pre-existing condition, it won't be covered. However, some long-term medical plans will cover or exclude pre-existing conditions. Check the policy for details.
