What is covered and not covered?
The insurance company will generally pay for new medical conditions, injuries or accidents that may occur after the effective date of the policy. Limited coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions is available for ages younger than 70 years. It does not cover any expenses related to pre-existing conditions, preventive check ups, immunizations or maternity.
Prescription drugs are covered according to the schedule of benefits for covered medical expenses. More information.
Dental is covered only up to $550 for emergency treatment from an accident covered under the plan. Consider a low cost plan from Careington that provides excellent dental coverage.
Visitors Care provides coverage anywhere outside of your residence country including travel time as well.
How do I use the insurance?
Please look at the detailed description.
How much is covered?
You will have to pay a deductible (varies from $0 to $100) per certificate period before the insurance company starts paying anything for the covered expenses, even for doctor visits. You will need to continue to pay all the money yourself until you have completely satisfied the deductible. The deductible is not just for the hospitalization. There is no concept of copay. The deductible is applied only towards the eligible expenses.
After that, the plan pays fixed amounts according to the schedule of benefits up to the policy maximum. As you have to pay all the difference yourself beyond that, there is no out of pocket maximum.

Lets assume that you have taken $50,000 policy maximum with $50 deductible.
Lets assume that the doctor charges $140/visit.
Visit 1: Insurance company covers $60. You have $50 towards the unsatisfied deductible. The plan pays $10 ($60 - $50).
Visit 2: As you have satisfied your deductible, the plan pays $60.
For all subsequent visits, up to the covered number of visits, it will continue to pay $60/visit.
You need to go to an emergency room visit which costs you $2,400. The insurance company covers $330. After $50 deductible (if not already satisfied), it will pay $280 and you will pay $2,120.
Let's assume that you were in an accident and are hospitalized for 3 days and needed one surgery and the total bill is $40,000. The insurance company will pay $1,400/day for hospital room/board and $3,300 for surgery for a total of $1,400 x 3 + $3,300 = $7,500, assuming you have already satisfied your deductible of $50. You will be responsible for the balance of $32,500.
