Why Purchase International Accident & Sickness Insurance?
This travel insurance plan is designed to cover anyone traveling outside their home country. The flexibility of this plan makes it ideal for business and leisure travelers, expatriates, study abroad, work study programs, international exchange students, tourists, and church or missionary travelers.
Why do long-term international travelers need this coverage?
Problem for U.S. Travelers
Most group and individual health plans sold in the United States provide limited coverage while traveling overseas. PPO's do not extend their network's abroad, so any difference in billing expenses or claims that are not considered eligible expenses will become the responsibility of the insured. Medicare provides no coverage outside the U.S. (see U.S. Passport for details).
Problem for Non - U.S. Citizens
Nationalized or government sponsored health plans rarely provide adequate medical coverage for illnesses or injuries sustained while traveling outside your home country. Extreme sports, hazardous activities, emergency medical air evacuation and repatriation are usually not covered under nationalized health insurance schemes. Most travelers to the United States are innocently unaware of how expensive medical care and treatment can be in the U.S. Not to mention, that medical care in the U.S. is usually provided through HMO's or managed care facilities, which may not recognize a "foreign insurance company" or government sponsored health plan.
This brochure is meant to be a brief summary of the plan features only for the Diplomat LT Plan and does not cover all the terms, conditions and limitations of the Plan Document - the Plan Document will govern in all cases. Benefits and plan costs are subject to change.
The Diplomat LT provides Accident and Sickness Medical Coverage and AD&D benefits to those traveling outside their Home Country (For coverage inside the U.S., you must be a Non-U.S. Resident). Coverage is available for you, a second adult, unmarried dependent Children, or Children traveling alone. Travel assistance services are also available.
Period of Coverage
The minimum initial period of coverage that can be purchased is 3 months, the maximum is 365 days. Participant can re-apply for an additional term of 365 days of coverage. Any subsequent new periods of coverage will not include a pre-existing condition limitation and will be issued at the guaranteed rate. A participant is eligible to reapply for up to 2 separate terms from the date of the initial enrollment with this guarantee.
A Person will become a Plan Participant under the Plan Document, provided proper premium payment is made, on the latest of:
- The date the Company receives a completed application or enrollment form; or
- The moment Plan Participant exits their Home Country airspace; or
- The Date the Company approves the Application; or
- The Date requested by the Plan Participant.
Insurance for a Plan Participant will end on the earliest of:
- The date Plan Participant is no longer in an Eligible Class; or
- The date the Plan Participant's Trip is completed, unless otherwise covered under the Plan Document; or;
- The expiration of 365 days from the Effective Date of Coverage; or
- The date shown on the Schedule of Insurance issued by the Company.
The Diplomat LT plan was designed mainly to provide accident & sickness and evacuation coverage for foreign nationals traveling inside the USA or for US Nationals traveling outside the USA. This plan is also available for Non-US residents who travel outside of their home country.

This insurance is not subject to, and does not provide certain insurance benefits required by the United States' Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("PPACA"). PPACA requires certain US citizens or US residents to obtain PPACA compliant health insurance, or "minimum essential coverage." PPACA also requires certain employers to offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. Tax penalties may be imposed on U.S. residents or citizens who do not maintain minimum essential coverage, and on certain employers who do not offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. In some cases, certain individuals may be deemed to have minimum essential coverage under PPACA even if their insurance coverage does not provide all of the benefits required by PPACA. You should consult your attorney or tax professional to determine whether this policy meets any obligations you may have under PPACA. This policy is not subject to guaranteed issuance or renewal.
