Ninety percent of the plans offered by Good Neighbor Insurance can now be purchased online.
Below are a few things to be aware of when applying online:
- Do not apply online if you are not sure what you are getting. Study the health insurance plan you are purchasing, especially the benefit page and the exclusion page. If you cannot find an exclusion page on the web site, do not purchase online.
- Before you purchase online, check to see if there is a telephone number for an agent somewhere on the site. Write the number down and have it handy if you run into a problem. Be sure to also record the web site address so you can find it again if necessary. As a general rule, the larger your investment the more careful you want to be when purchasing international health insurance online.
- What are the advantages with an online purchase? First, it is often quicker. Second, in most cases, you receive an immediate confirmation of coverage. Generally, an online purchase for short-term health insurance can speed up delivery of your medical ID cards and policy by two-three days. Third, an important advantage is that you can apply while outside the USA, away from contact with an agent or insurance personnel. You can purchase via a friend’s computer or in a computer kiosk and at any time. So applying online and knowing how to apply online for international short-term health insurance gives you much flexibility.
