Do you provide travel coverage for pregnant women in America? I am an American living in Jordan and my husband is Irish. Thanks.
Pacific Prime can offer maternity coverage to individuals residing in any area of the world, including Jordan and America. Comprehensive health insurance plans, which we provide, can offer coverage options including maternity benefits. For a short term trip away from your home country a travel health insurance plan may be a suitable option for you, which in some cases can provide maternity coverage to individuals under its policy.
A Travel Health Insurance plan, which we highly recommend and can provide, is purchased by individuals who are seeking comprehensive international medical coverage on a short term basis. A Travel Health Insurance plan typically covers medical expenses relating to an accident or illness, for a duration specified by the policy holder, of up to 12 months.
Health insurance policies typically place a waiting period on maternity health coverage, however a travel health insurance plan can provide different limitations. On an Individual Health Insurance plan, you are typically unable to receive any medical expenses relating to your pregnancy until the waiting period is complete. This waiting period is generally 10 to 12 months. However in some cases, a Travel Health Insurance plan will provide you with immediate medical coverage, including medical assistance relating to emergency maternity treatment.
Travel health insurance plans which we can provide will typically provide you with emergency maternity coverage prior to the 8th month (or 36th week) of your pregnancy; or up to the 4th month (or 18th week) when your pregnancy is the result of fertility treatment or if you are expecting more than one child.
Medical expenses, relating to maternity, are generally not covered after the 36th week. A Travel Health Insurance Plan will also typically cover medical expenses relating to pregnancy complications, in the event of an accident or illness. It is important to note that coverage differs and will vary by insurer, and that Travel Health Insurance policies which we can provide will not offer coverage for delivery charges or non-emergency maternity medical treatment.
A Travel Health Insurance plan, which Pacific Prime can offer, provides you with comprehensive medical coverage in any country of the world. The coverage will generally include benefits for emergency evacuation or repatriation in the case of a medical emergency, and will provide you with access to quality medical services which are on par with international standards. This is highly important when traveling to a country such as Jordan, where most adequate hospitals are privately owned and medical insurance is necessary.
Travel health insurance plans will typically afford you a wide range of benefits such as:
Unlimited Maximum cover per person per trip
Compassionate Emergency Repatriation
Compassionate emergency visit
Home transportation of the deceased
Statutory arrangements in case of death
Board, lodging and local transport for a person summoned or accompanying the insured, per day.
All Travel Health Insurance policies offered by Pacific Prime are provided through IHI-BUPA. For additional information about the IHI-BUPA travel insurance plans which we offer, please see the list of travel insurance benefits.
Expats are strongly recommended to take out a health insurance plan while residing overseas. Health care facilities are located within the principle cities of Jordan and surrounding areas but adequate medical care becomes limited outside urban areas. Emergency evacuation to a hospital overseas, or repatriation, may be required where the appropriate level of care can be provided.
Pacific Prime has experienced advisers who can help you find a plan that suits you, whether you are looking for maternity coverage or other medical coverage benefits.
