No, most travel insurance plans are not ACA compliant, meaning they do not contain all of the essential benefits required under PPACA.

To be eligible for trip cancellation reimbursement, you must cancel your trip due to one of the reasons covered in your policy.

It’s clear-cut. You will need to pay for covered expenses up front, then file a claim for to get reimbursed by IMG.

Claims are promptly processed in accordance with industry standards.

Many health plans have limitations on the types of treatment that will be covered while traveling abroad.  So, if you need to visit a medical facility in another country, or be evacuated to another location that can better treat you, your health insurance may not cover it. Travel insurance can fill that gap—most travel insurance policies have the option of covering illnesses.
