What Is a Usual, Customary, and Reasonable Charge?

A usual, customary, and reasonable charge, often referred to as UCR, is the typical amount a medical provider will bill for a certain service within a geographical region. UCR is calculated by third-party data analysts who look at the different providers in a region and see what is charged for a specific service and is determined by pinpointing the amount that is charged by the most providers in that area. UCR will vary from region to region, and even between insurance companies, depending upon the analysists each company uses. That’s why it’s important for consumers to do their research before buying a policy. Look at the policy you are thinking of buying, but also do research on the providers you may need to see while you are on your trip.

Group Travel Insurance is Less Expensive Than Individual Policies?

While the cost of travel insurance does depend on the coverage you need and the length of your stay, putting together a group policy will greatly reduce the premium just by adding more people into the policy. The less risk the insurance company thinks it’s taking on, the lower your premium will become. By adding more people onto the plan, the less risk overall the insurance company will incur. So, by that logic, a group insurance policy will cost less per person than buying every person an individual policy.

Should I Buy Visitors Insurance Even If It Doesn’t Cover Pregnancy or Child Birth?

Yes! Even though the policy won’t cover routine OBGYN visits or pregnancy related medication, you will still be thankful to have emergency coverage for any other illness or accident that could happen. Remember, you are always able to be seen by a doctor or hospital when you need to, but if pregnancy or child birth is treated while you are traveling, claims could be denied due to it being a pre-existing condition. Purchasing a visitors policy will allow you to be treated for illnesses and accidents not related to your pregnancy, which will be beneficial for you and your unborn child. Finding out you are pregnant shouldn’t delay your travel plans. As long as you are healthy and careful, you will have a great trip without any need for pregnancy coverage overseas. You still should, however, buy a visitors insurance policy. These policies are strictly for the accidents and sudden illnesses. It’s a security blanket if you end up needing one, there for peace of mind while you travel internationally. You will be glad you have it whether you end up using it or not.

Can I visit any doctor or hospital with visitor's insurance? And what is PPO network?

Most visitors insurance policies in the United States use a re-imbursement system. This means that if you utilize any of medical services, you have to file a claim to be reimbursed for the charges. When you have visitors insurance, you can visit any doctor or hospital and file a claim. However, if you go to a doctor or hospital that is in the PPO network, you can get a discounted rate on your medical services, which can save on out-of-pocket expenses. Also, the insurance company can be directly billed, so you don’t have to cover the charges and then wait to be reimbursed, in most cases. What is a PPO Network? A Preferred-Provider Organization (PPO) network is a network of medical care providers that provide care for individuals who have particular insurance plans. When visiting a provider in the network, they will charge negotiated fees for service, which are usually less than what you would pay to other providers. Since not all insurance plans will cover all of the expenses, this can save you from having to pay more out-of-pocket expenses. For example, if your plan requires a co-payment, the PPO network providers will charge a lower co-payment, than those outside of this network.
