traveladvisor has indicated that this thread is about Mexico

I'd like to take a friend on a trip to Mexico but I'm not sure if she would be able to get coverage because she has a medical condition. I don't want to take her, risk her needing medical attention and she's not covered. Does anyone know if you can get coverage and if so is it more expensive?

Very few insurance policies cover pre-existing medical conditions and if you find a company that will insure her of course it will usually be more expensive than normal.

CSA, Global Alert, Travelex, Travel Guard, Travel Insured and Travel Safe are some companies that will sometimes cover pre-existing conditions. It's easy to Google this info.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Terry

World Nomads comes highly recommended, but you should contact them for specific coverage needs.

Unfortunately World Nomads will NOT cover a pre-existing medical condition.
