A fixed benefit travel insurance plan is the cheapest travel insurance plan option. Fixed benefit travel insurance is cheap because it has a fixed limit of coverage for different medical benefits.
Fixed benefit travel insurance plans work well in case of small ailments but can be inadequate in the event of a serious medical ailment or hospitalisation.
Comprehensive travel insurance plans provide exhaustive coverage for health expenses up to the policy medical maximum amount. In contrast to fixed benefit plans there are no limits for each benefit. Comprehensive insurance is more expensive when compared to fixed benefit plans but provides significantly better coverage in case of a medical emergency or hospitalisation.

Here are some tips for buying pre-existing conditions travel insurance
There are many international travelers with medical ailments and it is important for them to be well informed about visitors travel insurance for pre-existing conditions. Most US travel insurance plans exclude coverage for pre-existing conditions. The definition of pre-existing conditions varies for different insurance providers as they have a ‘look back’ period and any medical ailments during this look back period would be considered pre-existing.
At American Visitor Insurance, we have plans which provide coverage for acute onset of a pre-existing condition up to a clearly defined limit in the policy document. All of these details can be best understood by using our facility for comparing visitors insurance for pre-existing conditions and reviewing the policy brochures.
Atlas Travel Insurance, Atlas America Insurance and Atlas Premium Insurance from WorldTrips offer acute onset of a pre-existing condition coverage under age 80. The plans offer up to $25,000 lifetime maximum for Emergency Medical Evacuation for visitors to the US. For visitors outside the USA, Atlas International provides acute onset of pre-existing conditions coverage up to the age of 79 years in the event of life threatening conditions. Another option is the Visitor Secure insurance for visitors to USA offers coverage up to chosen plan maximum for acute onset of pre-existing conditions.
The following are the important factors to consider while purchasing visitors insurance for pre-existing conditions
The visitor health insurance plans which cover acute onset of pre-existing conditions clearly define what is a pre-existing condition and the look back period for pre-existing condition and the limit of travel insurance coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions.
The "Acute Onset of a Pre-Existing Condition" is a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence of a pre-existing medical condition which occurs without any advance warning either in the form of physician recommendations or symptoms and requires immediate care (within 24 hours of first symptoms).
A Pre-Existing Condition that is a chronic or congenital condition or that gradually becomes worse over time will not be considered acute onset. The acute onset coverage benefit does not include coverage for known, scheduled, required, or expected medical care, drugs or treatment existent or necessary prior to the effective date of coverage. An example of this might be someone who has a food allergy or bee allergy and is unknowingly exposed to their allergen and requires immediate medical attention.
Acute onset of a pre-existing condition can be defined as the sudden & unexpected occurrence of a pre-existing condition which requires in-patient, emergency hospitalization within 24 hours of exhibiting first symptoms. The main difference between acute onset & full pre-existing is that with Full Pre-Existing coverage, is that one is covered for all pre-existing conditions and associated medical costs and this includes follow up visits, hospitalizations and doctor’s visits, etc. The acute onset coverage will only cover the in-patient hospitalization expense.
Some US travel insurance plans offer coverage for "acute onset" of pre-existing conditions. They however exclude emergencies due to chronic illness because they will say that is not "acute" it is simply a worsening of your condition. The WorldTrips’s Atlas America Insurance policy offers temporary medical insurance with coverage for acute onset of pre-existing conditions.
Worldtrips defines pre-existing conditions in the following way: A pre-existing condition is a condition for which the insured received treatment or took medication for in the previous 12 months before the start of the policy. If the medication dosage has not changed and is taken as a maintenance medication, this would NOT count as a flare up or treatment of the condition. In that case, very stable conditions that have no flare ups in the past 12 months are not even excluded as pre-existing conditions. Conditions that have had flare ups or doctor recommended treatment or change in medication, are still covered by the plans but with a higher deductible and a lower maximum.
WorldTrips’s Atlas America Insurance and Atlas Premium Insurance are comprehensive plans. These plans will offers Acute on set of Pre-existing conditions up to overall maximum limit, under age 80. Another option from WorldTrips Visitor secure is a fixed plan offers Acute on set of Pre-existing conditions up to overall maximum limit, under age 70.
These Acute on set of pre-existing condition excludes the following conditions
I got a really great deal using World Trips Atlas insurance for my son. They found me the quote within minutes and it was by far the best on the market. Thank you!
Have not been on our trip yet but obtaining the insurance based on the different services provided was outstanding and made the decision easy on which plan to purchase.
Easy to review plans and was very reasonably priced despite my husband having a preexisting medical condition. Customer service was extremely patient and helpful.
