Can you offer international insurance for diabetes type 1

Can you offer international insurance for diabetes type 1

Question: 
We are US citizens who want to move to Mexico or Ecuador, preferably, but my husband is diabetic and I think he cannot qualify (even w/ residency) for the national health plans in those 2 countries. Are there other S or Central Amer countries w/ national health plans that would accept him, at a reasonable rate? Waiting periods? Medications? Or, is there private insurance for him? We would not need insur that traveled w/ us to the US, but just in the new country.

Answer: 

Answer: Hi Gretchen, thanks for getting in touch. We are unfortunately not able to sell localised or domestic policies in South & Central America, however, there are international insurance plans which do offer cover pre-existing medical conditions.

 

International insurers will evaluate the medical history of the new applicant through a medical questionnaire and base coverage according to the specific case. Some insurers may decline cover, but as we work with over 30 insurers we are able to provide a plan to meet your requirements.

 

Once the terms of cover have been issued, there are generally no waiting periods for treatment related to the medical condition, whether that be inpatient hospitalisation or outpatient medications - although each insurer does have their own policy terms & conditions.

 

We have sent you an email requesting some additional information, and will be able to send you and impartial and free quote thereafter. Thanks again, and we look forward to hearing back from you.
