Travel insurance for cancer patient

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 10/02/2013 - 11:05

Could anybody help me out with a good travel insurance company that won’t rip me off with huge bills? I’m probably going to visit Greece this November just for a tour along with a friend of mine. I need to get done this issue fast as I cannot settle the medical bills on my own. I contacted some carriers but they said that they won’t cover anything related to my cancer and that fact that my gallbladder was removed during an operation few months back.

Is there any provider that would cover me? Thanks in advance.

What exactly is your question?

Are you looking for insurance that will cover medical expenses incurred in a foreign country for a preexisting condition? Nothing like this exists anywhere in the world that I know of. Not even Obamacare will help you in that regard.

The general understanding in all forms of insurance is simple: If you wait to get the insurance you need until the moment you need it, you've waited at least a moment too long.

There ARE options for international travelers with pre-existing conditions!



Really? Something that will pay for elective surgery or treatments for a preexisting condition? Sounds might suspicious to me.
