1. Travel Medical Insurance Doesn’t Go the Distance
Literally. In most cases, domestic health insurance plans won’t cover you on international trips. If you’re in a remote area that doesn’t have quality care – or if you want to go home for medical treatment, you’ll likely need a medical evacuation. Typically, a medical evacuation will cost you anywhere from $30,000 to $200,000, which is a huge sum to pay out of pocket.
Why out of pocket? Because even if you have international vacation travel medical insurance coverage, you’ll still have to wait a lengthy period to be reimbursed for your claim (and that’s if your claim is approved). And if there’s a medical emergency, expenses are the last thing you want to worry about.
Your first concern will be getting the care you need, fast. That’s ours too. Although some insurance may kick in later to help you with expenses, not a whole lot of help is provided when you need it most. Now.
