Can I purchase a policy after becoming infected with MERS?

Last Updated:

Yes, however, if you purchase a policy after becoming infected with MERS, the illness will be treated the same as all other pre-existing medical conditions.

If you are not eligible for pre-existing condition coverage you may still purchase a policy, however you will not be able to be reimbursed for treatment related to the MERS diagnosis.

This information may vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help!
