  1. Part of the lesson here is to not use Manulife or any insurance that is underwritten by Manulife. They should be put out of business for essentially scamming people out of the money they paid. Deciding whether or not to accept a claim after they took their money should be considered theft and they should be taken to court for denying claims. The only thing insurance companies should be able to consider is if there is genuine medical need for the services they were provided.

  2. You don’t need to buy travel insurance when you travel. My husband and I traveled to Manila this year, unfortunately he was hospitalized diagnosed with congestive heart failure and pneumonia in one of the prime state of the art hospital in BGC in Manila. BCBS advised me that the hospital could directly bill my insurance or keep all hospital receipts and make a claim when we get back in the US. I paid the hospital with my credit card upon discharge. I got a total refund of all his hospital bills after the claim was reconciled. All it take was to send them the copy of receipts and in less than 4 weeks I got the check in the mail. When planning to travel abroad check your employer if your medical insurance covers you. Luckily I work for one of the top 10 Fortune 500 that offers this perk.

  3. Im a truck driver(18yrs) who was hit in the back by a truck driver in Arkansas… companies try to put you back on these highways rathar then fix the problem their insured caused ….i was parked(highway construction)and theyve fought me for 3 years (fire and rescue insurance of america)they want me on the road with back spasms that incapacitate me for 5-10 seconds …im putting the word out ……..pass it on….. Texas Arkansas Tennessee Virginia New York my dedicated run tell the people to be where… fire and rescue Insurance of America company wants me back on the road incapacitated

  4. im more interested in what happens if you had ticked yes. Does it cost more, and how much more for the insurance?

  5. WOW! 300-2500 for a travel insurance? I bought a travel insurance in Germany for a 4 day USA travel and it cost me €20, because i took the super premium offer. This insurances can get as low as €3… And in addition to that I had never to fill out a health questionaire, the only thing not covered are conditions that are worsening while traveling (when you started travelling sick).

  6. Like most insurance companies, complete scam artists. They have no problem taking your money, travel or car insurance companies, but the moment you need to make a claim or need to use the insurance, they have excuses such as one used in this video that the person didn't fill out the form properly to avoid having to pay out that money that is needed to cover the bill. What travel agencies should do is ask the person if they require travel insurance, call the insurance company directly or go to a insurance company in person. This is another example of insurance companies taking advantage of the elderly, they know they are high risk travelers, probably on several types of medication for whatever condition they have.
