What is Comprehensive plan

These are main benefits of comprehensive plans :

  • These plans provide broad and flexible medical benefits .
  • These plans provides better financial protection to visitors if they get sick or get into accident.
  • Compherensive plans you pay %(percentage) of medical expance after deductible , most common is 80%-20% plans , where you pay 20% (after deductible) and insurance pays 80% .
  • These visitor insurance plans do no have fixed amount for each medical procedure ,like in limited coverage plans have.
  • Benefits for covered medical expenses go all the way up to the plan maximum (less deductible and co-insurance).
  • Comprehensive insurance are widely accepted by doctors and hospitals and have PPO network.

Typically for all covered medical expenses during the plan period the insured pays the deductible plus 20% of the first $5,000 in bills; and then the plan pays 100% of the eligible medical expenses up to the plan maximum. Some of these plans tend to have a minimal coverage for pre-existing conditions like $20K. These are a bit expensive but have better coverage for major catastrophic bills.

How Visitor Health Insurance Claim Process Works ?

To get visitor health insurance claim you can present the insurance card you received directly to healthcare provider and they would directly bill the healthcare provider , Insurance directly pays the healthcare provider. 

If in some cases healthcare provider may not accept the card in that case first you pay the provider  the medical expanse from your pocket and the you can submit claim to insurance company and they would reimburse the medical eligible medical expanse to you.

What is limited or fixed plans

Fixed Benefits also knows as Limited coverage plans have fixed benefit amount coverage for each madical service. These benefit limits are not the same as the plan medical maximum.

For example, a plan with a $50,000 maximum limit may have a maximum of $3000 for surgery, and a maximum of $500 for diagnostic services (X-rays, scans etc). These fixed limits for different situations are detailed in the plan brochure. The customer is required to pay an initial deductible for each injury or sickness and the plan pays for the rest of the covered expenses.These are the most affordable plans but usually recommended if family members are very healthy.
