ST. PETERSBURG, FL April 7, 2015 – Travel insurance comparison site, Squaremouth, allows travelers to quote, compare, and purchase travel insurance from every major provider in the US. To help travelers learn more about these companies, Squaremouth has launched the travel insurance provider spotlight series. In this article, Squaremouth shines a light on HCC Medical Insurance Services.
Online Insurance Frontier
Established in Indianapolis in 1998, HCC Medical Insurance Services (HCCMIS) was one of the first companies to offer emergency medical insurance products and services online. Today, customers can review coverage options, obtain quotes, purchase travel insurance, and receive their documentation electronically 24 hours a day. Also available online, is HCCMIS’ “Client Zone”, an online portal which allows customers to view pre-trip advisories, download an ID card, file a claim, and extend their coverage.
In 2002, the Noel Group, LLC bought HCCMIS, adding service offices throughout the world, expanding its product offerings, and transforming its customer service department into a travel insurance and international assistance platform. Six years later, the company was purchased by HCC Insurance Holdings, Inc., further expanding HCCMIS into the brokerage community. Both acquisitions have increased the company’s assets and ratings. Today, HCCMIS has the highest rating of A+ by A.M. Best Company, which rates their financial security.
Creative and Flexible Benefits
HCCMIS owns a syndicate at Lloyd’s of London, positioning them with unique advantages in the marketplace. Among these advantages, is the flexibility it provides in creating new benefits to meet the evolving international travel medical insurance industry. Personal liability, crisis management, and the ability to include additional Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage are a few benefits offered by HCCMIS that are not commonly included in most other travel medical policies.
Advice for International Travelers
“Most individuals with a domestic insurance plan often wonder if they need supplemental coverage while traveling abroad. Our answer is typically ‘yes’,” said Juan Mas, Business Unit Director at HCC. “Most domestic insurance companies will provide limited or no coverage outside of the member’s home country. Travel medical insurance is usually affordable and can protect one’s health and assets during an international adventure.”
