Can you offer Travel Health Insurance for my mother who has a heart condition

Question: 
Hi, my mother is traveling from India to Australia for a period of 7 months and I need a comprehensive health insurance plan for her that will cover emergency. She has a pacemaker so I am looking for something that will cover her for any emergency if it occurs. She is perfectly stable and healthy and will be carrying all her medications for the period.

The policy holder can obtain coverage anywhere from 1 day up to a period of 12 months duration.

Additional coverage options are available in the Travel Health Plans BUPA-IHI provide. In addition to the standard health care plan, individuals can also select non-medical benefits such as personal accident, theft, baggage damage or loss, personal liability, flight delay, or trip cancellation.

Travel Health Insurance is designed to cover acute illness and injury for the duration of your trip abroad. Generally, this will include unexpected illnesses or accidents that required medical assistance. If you suffer from a health condition, prior to your trip, than this will normally not be covered in your Travel Health Insurance plan. However in some cases, a pre-existing illness can be covered if the condition has been stable in the six months prior to the commencement of the plan. Our advisers can assist you with any questions regarding Travel Health Insurance and provide you with further information in relation to coverage benefits included in the policy.
