Health Insurance for those over 26 years old

My daughter, who lives and works outside the US, is turning 26 this month and will be dropped from our HCP.
She has insurance through her employer but it has limited international coverage. Since she travels to the US fairly regularly, I am looking for a plan to cover her in case an emergency arises during one of her visits. Anyone with any knowledge re affordable plans, please share. Thanks

  • I'd call a Health Insurance Broker. They can give you options on many plans.

  • there really isn't any health insurance plan put there that covers emergencies only for US only. If she lives in another country I will recommended she look for a insurance broker there and ask them about plans that cover outside her home country. US brokers can only give her plans that will cover outside the US for emergencies. Look into Aflack

  • I'm guessing your best bet would be to talk to a large insurance agency that sells policies from several companies. Explain your situation; some insurance companies may operate in the U.S. and also in the country where your daughter works.

  • I agree with the above - GL OP. My DD will be in the same boat in a couple of years (even tho she doesn't work out of country - she will simply age out).

  • Look specifically into travel insurance. If her official residence is out of country, it's possible visiting home would qualify.
