I found it a little difficult to find medical evacuation insurance only, not as a part of a general travel insurance policy. Also, a friend called your customer service department directly to obtain quotes. She was sent more choices than I found on-line. That being said, I found, and purchased, what I was looking for.
Since Medicare doesn't cover international travel, I was pleased to find emergency medical coverage and other services at a reasonable rate - $56 for both my husband and myself for an 18-day trip. Thanks for giving me peace of mind.
The claim was settled for less than the amount claimed, due to lack of receipts. It was a small amount that I didn't have time and desire to fight back which is what happens in most of the insurance claims.
I need Claim assistant to contact me since I have not received any communication back from you after initial acknowledgement.

Best Travel claim experience. They are by far the best and hassle free claim.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Because of an influx of claims resulting from a series of natural disasters, our claims department is asking for 30-45 days to process claims. If you would like to check on the status of your claim, you can contact the claims department by email at email@example.com or by phone at (855) 762-6252.
RoamRight emailed the appropriate paperwork prior to my departure and that is the only communication prior to my trip so it isn't possible to rate my experience prior to contacting customer service. However, I had items stolen during my trip and had to contact them to file a claim.
I contacted RoamRight by phone and they emailed me the claim form. They did not inform me at the time that I could have filed online and they did not discuss the time frame or procedure in any length. They also did not tell me what to do if I did not have a receipt so I had to make another call to get more information. I faxed the claim and received an email notice the claim was assigned. I waited 8 days to contact the claims adjuster. I emailed and received the same automated response I got 8 days earlier, which was we have your claim, but no further information was given . I decided to call the adjuster instead and was not allowed to speak to them and was told " it takes 2-3 weeks" and that is standard but your near the top of the list so that's good. It had not even been reviewed or seen by the adjuster so it takes 3 weeks before they even look at the claim. The customer representative was curt and somewhat sarcastic when I informed her that one of the items I was doing without was a cell phone that was stolen. She thought it was ridiculous that I could be living without a cell phone due to the claim with them. Because cell phones cost over $800 I would like to at least be partially reimbursed before I buy a new one. Therefore, I am living without one. Her attitude was not one of wanting to help. Overall, they have not been very informative, helpful, or efficient. I would not recommend them. We will see if they even do what they are supposed to do in the end.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As you mentioned, in order to thoroughly and accurately examine each claim, it takes 2-3 weeks from when the claim is submitted for an examiner to make a decision.
In your case, a decision on your claim was made on 8/23 and you should receive the details of the decision shortly.
Thank you for posting a review.
We apologize for your negative experience with RoamRight.
A member of our Zero Complaint team contacted you to discuss your claim further.
Please contact us at 800-240-0369 if you have any questions, we are happy to help.
Representative was understanding and helpful in extending the effective dates of policy before we started trip, explaining that the policy actually had a longer validity period beyond the one-week period for which it was purchased.
Wonderful customer service - will continue to use RoamRight/Squaremouth for our travel needs, and will continue to recommend the service to friends and colleagues.
My bag is lost in Rome, fortunately our cell phone was not in the bag, then we contacted them Immediately after we lost the bag, they provide me some information to solve the problem very quickly. So far so good with RoamRight untill now. I just submitted the claim form, hope I can get my compensation quickly
Our overall experience is yet to be determined. We needed to cancel our trip due to a medical emergency with our daughter. Filing a claim has been fairly straightforward. We received an e-mail shortly after filing with our adjuster's name and contact information. Hopefully it is in the final stages of review.
It would help to make it more clear that when one applies for coverage including pre-existing conditions that it is required to include the cost of the trip including the flights. I was told by the RoamRight agent that the pre-existing coverage would be invalid if flights weren't covered. I don't understand why I must cover the flights if I choose not to include the price of flights and know I won't get reimbursed for them if I have to cancel. Even on nonrefundable flights the airlines I have used will let you use the fare minus a penalty to re-book a flight within a year.
For the second time I have found the insurance company to be the best value for the money
