Senior citizens visiting USA Insurance
Are you looking for a travel health insurance for an older traveller? A senior citizen who is in his/her late 70s to visit the United States? Then you will find the following information useful and helpful for your situation.

It is quite a common situation where older travellers who are above 70 years also known as senior citizens are traveling outside their home country to the US in order to meet their children and family. Apart from them being in good health condition, it is a little scary considering their age when it comes to their medical needs. A daughter or a son of a senior citizen is worried about their parents forthcoming visit to the US and the need to get their parents a good medical insurance during their stay in US. In spite of them being healthy long distance travel may lead to unexpected illness or injury. During such situations health insurance play significant role in making the individual feel hassle free, safe and secure. Since these senior citizens are Non US citizens, they are not eligible to the ACA, also known as ObamaCare program to get medical and health insurance cover in US.

There are several private insurance companies that offer US visa health insurance plans for parents for their short term stay in US. There are 2 kinds of plans available. Fixed plans and Comprehensive plans are the two kinds. Both of these plans provide good coverage for people from age 69 to 79. After the age of 79, people who are 80 and above can purchase fixed plans as it provides better policy maximum as compared to comprehensive plans. Here at American Visitor Insurance we have plans available for senior citizens. Please have a look at this webpage to get a clear idea of the difference between Fixed and Comprehensive plan. We have pages which clearly show the plans suitable for the concerned age here in our website Plans for seniors over 70 years and Plans for seniors over 80. For people above 70 and below 80 there is some coverage available for pre-existing conditions but for people above 80, there is no coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Inbound USA plan from Seven Corners: This plan has the policy maximum options of $50,000, $75,000 and $100,000 for people above the age 90.

In this page here Inbound USA, you can compare the plans and review the benefits in order to decide the right plan.

Senior citizens who are traveling to popular destinations in United States should be aware of this fact given the costly health care system in the US.

Stroke resulting in ICU for about 10 days would cost $120,000, Heart attack treatment with medical bills for ambulance, hospital emergency room, ICU, EKG and MRI heart scans and continuing care from cardiologists would cost about $20,000, The average treatment cost of acute kidney failure in the USA was over $22,000 in 2018. There are some visitor insurance plans from INF that offer coverage for pre-existing medical ailments.

All travel health insurance policies are priced by age and the number of days needed, so your age does determine your cost. The price difference between 69 and 70 IS a big jump. If you are traveling at age 69 and will turn 70 during your trip you get to pay the whole time like a 69 yr old (a real bargain). However, some coverages which end at age 70 (like some pre-existing medical condition coverage) will end on your birthday. At American Visitor Insurance, we offer many policies for people 70+ and are adding policies all the time to improve our offering to our traveling seniors!
It depends on the company and the type of policy you are looking for. Many policies do not have a cut off age, but some do. Also, the main difference for older travelers is that the maximum of the policy available goes down with higher age. You may only find options in the $50,000 maximum or less, but you may still find something suitable for your situation.
