Medical insurance for visiting parent

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My dad will be visiting over the holidays. He has hypertension. Has anyone used medical insurance, where did you get it, and would you recommend getting one?

I have never used this site but others have so read carefully before making a decision for your family's needs. It's a place start looking for short term health insurance.

I have no knowledge of the PI presumably market, Travel Insurance is something he would buy locally before he travels. I would have thought his market would be quite developed bearing in mind the large customer base.

 

When my Mum used to visit she had medical issues and had to be individually underwritten so a longer process and more expensive.

Yeah, I posted in the Philippines forum for that purpose. I thought it would be expensive for him, too, as he has health issues. ☹️

 

How much longer of a process was it for your Mom?

I am not sure, I was not directly involved, now most people can sign up for Travel Insurance in a couple of clicks, bit every year she had to shop around and seemed that Underwriting parameters changed very year so she had to go with a different insurer every year to get a vaguely acceptable premium.

have you looked at having a doc prescribe a larger quantity for his medication, enough to cover him while he is visiting the US? then ask the doctor for a letter certifying the medication and describing your father's need for it. a lot of people bring meds when traveling esp something as common as hypertension medication. aside from the fact that your father will avoid any teething issues with adjusting to a new doctor and new medication, this will be a much, (way much) cheaper option.
