What the heck is a pre-existing condition?

One of the most important things to understand when considering a travel medical plan, is whether or not it covers a pre-existing condition(s). A pre-existing condition is anything you have or take medication for, saw the doctor for, have symptoms of, prior to the day that you start your travel medical insurance policy. Just because you haven’ t gone to the doctor yet, if you felt poorly with stomach pain for the last couple days, you couldn’t buy a travel medical policy and go to the doctor for your stomach issues. All travel insurance plans will cover new things that happen after your coverage starts. If you need to see a doctor for a pre-existing condition while on your trip, there are fewer plans available that will cover those issues.

Making Much of the Least of These: How You Can Help Rebecca’s Home Thumbnail

Making Much of the Least of These: How You Can Help Rebecca’s Home

Mozambique is a beautiful country in the southern part of Africa and forms part of the continent’s Indian Ocean coastline. Despite its beauty and bounty, the country often struggles with poverty, civil unrest, joblessness, adverse weather and disease—primarily HIV. These daily difficulties have left many children parentless or abandoned for financial reasons.

That’s where Insurance Services of America’s President, Graham Bates, and his wife, Rebecca Bates, realized they had an opportunity to help. But the story of their ministry to needy children did not begin in Sub-Saharan Africa, but rather 4,000 miles north, in Turkey. Read More »

Planning a Long Trip? What Expatriates Need to Know Thumbnail

Planning a Long Trip? What Expatriates Need to Know

There has been a lot of talk—and even some action—in recent days about people wanting to move outside the US. Our tumultuous election cycle has inspired people from all walks of life and political leanings to at least consider the idea of emigration. For example, on election night, a high volume of visitors crashed Canada’s immigration website and New Zealand’s official immigration site saw over 56,000 visits in just 24 hours, compared to its usual 2,300 visits. Perhaps, for some, emigration is more than an impassioned threat.

If you’re seriously considering moving abroad, before you pack your bags or sign your resignation letter, we at Insurance Services of America suggest you consider your health insurance options once you leave American soil…

Many of our clients are volunteers and missionaries who live, for the majority of the year, outside of the US. In essence, they have been living an expat lifestyle while doing their philanthropic work. Though many are employed through US-based organizations, many are responsible for procuring their own health insurance coverage. But finding an insurance plan that also covers medical expenses for illnesses, injuries or wellness visits overseas and is also compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is impossible—such a plan simply doesn’t exist.

Whether you love or loathe the ACA, the fact is, this legislation did not take into account people like our clients—or expats—who work, live and need health care outside of the US.

So what are your options? Read More »
