Why should you buy?
Reason 1: Sickness, Accident and Medical Evacuation Benefits
During your trip or international experience you may need to see a doctor, have a prescription filled, receive care at a hospital, or deal with an unexpected medical emergency. Remember:
- Some health plans don't cover illnesses or injuries incurred outside the United States. Some plans will cover such expenses, but at a reduced rate.
- Most health plans do not cover medical evacuation, which can cost $100,000 or more.
The Sickness, Accident and Medical Evacuation benefits provided can help protect you against these unforeseeable circumstances. In addition, the Global Medical Assistance Service that is included provides round-the-clock support that may help you handle an unforeseen emergency.
