Help me in selecting plan for my father who is currently 71 years old and I wanted to make him visit doctor for consultation. It should also covers Xray's and normal checkups. He will be there in US for 3 months on a visitor visa.


If you father is traveling to the U.S. on a B2 visitor visa, he would then need a visitor plan.  However, all plans on the market for visitors cover new illnesses and new injuries that occur or manifest after the effective date.  They do not cover preventative care, routine maintenance, or pre-existing conditions.

Therefore, your scenarios would not be covered under any visitor plan.

Some plans do come with Acute Onset benefits of pre-existing conditions.  That benefit is for sudden and unexpected emergencies due to pre-existing conditions that come in without symptom or warning, are rapidly progressing and require treatment within 24 hours. However, these are emergency situations and would not apply to consultations and preventative check-ups.

If you do want a plan with Acute onset benefits for your father, we would recommend the Atlas America plan.
