Is COVID-19 covered?
Yes, COVID-19 is treated as any other illness under this policy. Be aware the as it is a global medical insurance policy there are no included benefits for hotel quarantine requirements as that is not a medical benefit.
What is the Mastercard connection?
We have seen that change is needed and how it should be easier to use your insurance. On the International Health Insurance plans (Preferred & Preferred Plus) you get a transactional card that is connected to the Mastercard network to pay for authorized claims. In addition, you can use our app (iOS Apple or Android) for processing claims and instant reimbursement, yet we prefer to pay the hospital/clinic directly in all situations where this is possible. (note: our previous plans as Nomad Health Insurance do not have this feature)
Where can I learn more about the INC app?
Read more about the INC app here. Policies purchased after the 18th of May get INC for a 12 month period of time from the start of your policy. INC by Insured Nomads is a membership program that includes crisis response, assistance, airport lounge access, evacuation for political unrest/terrorism/natural disaster, telemedicine, wellbeing/counseling, and much more.
What is the process once I apply?
Once your application is submitted it is then reviewed by our medical underwriting team, this process takes on average 2 business days. If there is more data required due to responses to your health history, then you will be contacted to provide that information and then it's processed. The decision response is sent to you, and if it's accepted as quoted you get a payment link to complete the purchase. If the policy is offered to you at a new price/premium increased due to health question responses then an offer will be sent for you to accept and then the payment email is issued to you. Soon after the payment is made the policy is then issued to you, you then get a welcome email with all the benefits that come in parallel to the policy so that you can add the apps to your phone and enjoy the features that are along this policy for your wellbeing and safety.
