GeoBlue Provides Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions for Travel…

GeoBlue_logo2So you have reached you golden years…  For many seniors this is a time when they finally get to chase some of their travel dreams.  One big concern for today’s seniors is if they decide to travel outside the borders of the United States what kind of coverage do they have for medical issues that may arise.

Good News…

If you are over the age of 65 and you have primary domestic health insurance coverage GeoBlue’s travel medical plans will provide coverage for pre-existing conditions for medical services and medical evacuation.  For this to happen you must have a primary domestic health plan in place when you apply for coverage.  GeoBlue considers Medicare as primary domestic coverage in addition to any group coverage you may have if you have not yet fully retired.

Traveling overseas without purchasing a fully insured Travel Medical Plan could lead to some true headaches when outside the United States.  Medicare basically is worthless once you leave home.  GeoBlue offers the Voyager Choice plan up ages 84.  It is very cost-effective and the enrollment process is simple and completed completely online.  In addition GeoBlue is there when you need them.  Available 24/7 via phone, Internet and smart phone aps.
