What is covered and not covered?
The insurance company typically provides coverage for medical expenses incurred due to accidents and sickness that occur after the effective date of the insurance policy. This plan will not cover any expenses due to pre-existing conditions (except as defined in the certificate wording), preventive care/routine check-ups, or maternity; for complete details of exclusions, please refer to the certificate wording.
Prescription drugs are covered like any other eligible medical expenses.
Dental coverage is available for sound, natural teeth. If there is an injury, up to $500 is provided. For relief of pain, a maximum of $100 is provided for necessary treatment.
Safe Travels Outbound provides coverage anywhere outside the U.S., including travel time. It also provides travel related benefits such as trip interruption and trip delay.
How much is covered?
First, you will pay your chosen deductible once per policy period - deductible options vary from $0 to $2,500; except in states New Hampshire, Minnesota and Pennsylvania, in these states deductibles do not apply.
After the deductible is met, the plan pays up to your selected policy maximum - available policy maximum options vary by age:
- 69 and under: $50,000 $100,000, $250,000 and $500,000
- 70-79: $50,000 and $100,000
- 80 and older: $50,000
For both examples, let us assume that you purchased 2 months of coverage with a $50,000 policy maximum and a $250 deductible.
In this scenario, you're visiting a doctor for a new injury.
The first time you visit the doctor, the doctor charges $150. You will pay $150 for your first visit. The insurance plan does not pay anything yet, because you haven't satisfied your $250 deductible.
The second time you visit the doctor, the doctor again charges $150. This time, you will pay $100 and the insurance company will pay the remaining $50.
If you visit the doctor again, the insurance company will pay 100% up to your selected policy maximum.
In this scenario, you were in an accident and hospitalized for 2 days.
The hospital is charging $15,000 for each day of hospitalization, which totals $30,000. Of the $30,000 charge, you will pay your deductible of $250 first, then insurance plan will pay the rest.
