Best Travel Insurance Plans Covering Pre-Existing Conditions

Marketwatch estimates the global travel insurance market to cross the $35 billion market by 2025, driven by the rise in tourism worldwide. Increased tourism, however, is not the only reason for the growing travel insurance market.

A lot has to also do with the rising awareness among people for the need for protection while in a foreign land. This is especially true for those who have pre-existing medical conditions. One small health issue could ruin the best-paid plans.

Best Travel Insurance Plans that Cover Pre-Existing Conditions

However, not all travel insurance plans cover pre-existing conditions. So, if you’re making plans to visit the US for your next vacation, here are some travel insurance plans that covers pre-existing conditions.

Tip: Don't Forget Travel Insurance
If you’re traveling this year, I recommend getting a good travel insurance plan, to get the right protection. Atlas America is a popular choice among recent travelers.

This is a comprehensive plan ideal for visitors to the US, offered by International Medical Group (IMG). This plan is renewable and cancellable. It offers coverage of up to $500,000 against eligible medical expenses up to the policy maximum. It is meant for people with below 70, with pre-existing medical conditions.

Choice America

This is a low-cost plan that pays a fixed amount per incident. It has limited pre-existing condition coverage, with renewable and cancellable features. Choice America provides urgent care for sports and amusement park injuries and coverage for loss of passport and essential travel documents. You can visit any doctor or clinic of your choice, which is why it is “A” rated.
