Complaint Review: Allianz Global Assitance
Allianz Global Assitance Refused to pay claim for cancelled trip due to a medical emergency Richmond, Virginia
*Consumer Comment: always denying claims
*Author of original report: Hip infection was NEW condition
*UPDATE Employee: Jackie, Help Team
Two days later, he noticed that the incision was starting to swell. The doctor told him to go to the ER immediately and he was admitted and had two emergency surgeries to remove the infection. Because of this infection, he was unable to travel.
Allianz Global Assistance claimed that the underlying condition of a bad hip was pre-existing so they would not cover the air travel. The condition that caused him to not be able to travel was an infection, not a hip replacement. He had recovered from the hip surgery and was able to walk normally up and down stairs.
I do not recommend this company for travel insurance as they will find a way not to pay out on legitimate claims.
