When buying travel insurance, can preexisting medical conditions affect your coverage? The answer is yes, and not all plans cover cancellations/etc. related to them. Of course, it’s a little more complicated than that. Our friends at Allianz Global Assistance get a lot of questions about just this topic, which is why they put together the short video below. Give it a look, and see this page for more on how to deal with preexisting conditions when buying travel insurance.
The most important takeaway here is to make sure you know exactly what your plan covers before you buy it. Read the policy in full, and if you need to, speak to a representative on the phone. You never know how much it might end up mattering.
