Medical Travel Insurance

People traveling abroad for shorter periods of time might wish to purchase Medical Travel Insurance which can provide assistance during emergency medical needs abroad. These policies are less expensive as they are time specific rather than annual policies, this allows the policyholder to specifically tailor the plan to the exact length of their trip. A majority of international travel insurance policies will also allow the policyholder to be evacuated to the nearest center of medical excellence in the event of a serious illness or injury; it is also possible to obtain repatriation coverage. It should be noted that Medical Travel Insurance should not be used for elective procedures, but limited to use for emergency care only.

It is important to understand how your medical policy will assist you should you need urgent medical care in your host country. Unlike United States, many countries have only basic healthcare facilities and may require immediate cash payment for services. Therefore, it is advisable to understand the assistance your policy will provide to locate suitable healthcare facilities.
