    Calling Travel Guard

    • Q. Below are some common questions customers have regarding our claims process. Please read these questions carefully prior to contacting Travel Guard:
      A. Checking on the status of your claim is easy using Travel Guard's automated phone system. Our automated system can tell you what documentation is still needed to process your claim, and, if any payments have been made, the amount and date of the check issued. All you need is your claim number to take advantage of this timesaving system. To use this feature please call 1.800.826.1300 ext. 8351.
    • Q. Was my fax received?
      A. Please allow 2 weeks for our analyst to respond after faxing your information to Travel Guard. After 2 weeks if you have not received a response we invite you to call our automated system to verify the status of your claim. If the automated system tells you that what you faxed has not been received, we ask you to please refax your information to Travel Guard.
    • Q. Who should sign the Authorization for Release of Information form included with the claim form?

It is generally used by Travel Guard to contact the doctor when we can't read his/her writing, or to determine the pre-existence of the illness/injury that caused the claim.
