There are many visitors insurance plans available in the market today. However, most of them fall into two major categories: fixed coverage plans and comprehensive coverage plans. We always recommend everyone purchase comprehensive coverage plans.
Comprehensive Coverage Plans
We always recommend comprehensive coverage plans due to the following reasons:
Benefits: After the deductible, it will pay a set percentage up to a certain amount, then 100% up to the chosen policy maximum or a set percentage up to the chosen policy maximum.
Cost: The plans cost more than fixed coverage plans; however the cost is reasonable considering the benefits provided offer proper protection.
Deductible: Deductible only has to be met once per policy period or year.
Out of Pocket Maximum: Generally limited to chosen deductible and co-insurance in most cases.
Policy Maximum: Properly covered up to the chosen policy maximum.
PPO Network: Most plans participate in PPO network; have contracted rates, and direct billing available.
Contracted Rates: Available for PPO network plans.
Providers: Freedom to visit any provider; however it's beneficial to visit providers in the network.
Travel Coverage: Extensive benefits provided beyond the policy maximum.
Acute Onset of Pre-Existing Conditions: Provided in many plans.
Due to above reasons, we always recommend comprehensive coverage plans.Learn More
