    Hi everyone,

    This is a part rant and part looking for suggestions. Those of you who live abroad and have in laws visiting frequently, how are you managing insurance issues regarding COVID? It seems my MIL will be visiting us in December and most likely my FIL would not accompany her. So, my H is going to India in December and I overheard him and his siblings discussing about their parents visiting here. As far as I know, my H has only booked his tickets. The last time he went to India he brought MIL with him on a one way ticket. My MIL is in mid 50s, fairly healthy, recently diagnosed with high BP - like 2 months back or so and no other medical problems other than constant undiagnosed complaints. Realistically speaking I feel the odds are in her favor if she gets COVID but there is always a risk of mortality and then some people are having long term issues with COVID. personally I feel prevention is better than cure. My H and his family thinks otherwise. They feel that it will catch up to them eventually so why worry about precautions. I hope you guys understand what ever I say or do to convince my husband to cancel his visit or not to bring his mother will not work. They wont quarantine themselves. H already confirmed that he has no intention of quarantining himself after he comes back. I have a new baby and that gives my MIL a reason to visit us. The only thing I can hope for is a good health insurance that would cover hospitalizations,, Is anyone in the same boat? What did you guys end up doing? Any suggestions?

    I am sorry your in-laws are behaving like this. Will you even be able to get insurance that covers a pandemic?

    Isn't quarantining a rule?

    What your husband and MIL are planning is not safe. Why invite disaster unnecessarily. It is risky, more so with small baby at home. You have to convince them somehow to drop the idea.

    Not a rule, and certainly not government enforced.

    I think she mentioned already she cannot convince them.
    @Halosandwings - there is no specific covid insurance, but you can buy a general medical insurance for visitors. There are many options if you search online and you can find one that fits your budget and needs.

    Will this insurance cover a pandemic though? Visitors medical insurance is not great to begin with, so many conditions are excluded.

    Likely wont, will have to check fineprint for many exclusions. You are right, but its the best one can do given other family and relationship constraints/decisions.

    It’s very bad idea to bring parents in this situation. Visitors insurance never work here let alone for Covid. With pre extinction condition like diabetes blood pressure hospitals won’t take any type of insurance from India or us. It happens to our parent before. Convince your husband about this. Only thing you can try is going to family Indian doctors they may help when
