Health &Travel Insurance expiring during stay in USA. Need advice.

6 posts in this topic

Situation:

I paid for travel/health insurance before I left Germany for the US. I planned on only staying 3 weeks and it is good for six weeks. I had to put my mother in a nursing home (agonizing), and my father cannot be left alone, so I am finding a caregiver for him. I will be extending my stay. I called my insurance to extend and they said that you cannot get insurance if you are already there. This really complicates things.

I basically need coverage for another six weeks. I see a lot of posts about travel/health insurance outside of the EU, but have not found a person with my situation.

If there is someone out there with some helpful advice I thank you in advance!

Check WorldNomads or TrueTraveller...they can probably get you an insurance even if your trip already started

For future reference, it’s always been cheaper for us to book yearly travel insurance rather than insurance for individual trips. This may help future cases like the one mentioned above.

You need to look how many days of travel is covered under annual policies. Its not unlimited. Some are 45 day or 6 weeks annual and usa may be less or specjfically limited.  Look at the terms of your policy as all are different. You might be ablle to buy additional time if needed.
