International Health Insurance
Short Term International Coverage for Individuals & Families Traveling Abroad

Your Passport to International PlansLet us help you turn the odds your way. We understand the needs of the foreign travel and relocation market. Residing or visiting outside your country of citizenship may create challenges for your current healthcare program.

Brief trips or extended relocations expose you to risks which may not be covered by your current domestic medical insurance plan.  It is prudent to procure International health insurance coverage prior to leaving your home country and traveling abroad.

For those who are U.S. Citizens who plan to live outside the borders of the United States for extended periods of time - this can create potential hazards when you return home to live. Insure your insurability with the right international health plan. Selecting the right plan is extremely important and if your travel needs may be longer than several months you may want to consider a long term solution.

Traveling abroad without appropriate medical insurance puts you at risk...

The majority of U.S. based (domestic) health insurance provides minimal coverage when traveling abroad and no assistance services to the traveler. Policy language is often vague giving travelers a false sense of security regarding their medical coverage.

Arranging for and finding quality healthcare in unfamiliar surroundings with language and custom barriers is left to the traveler to manage. Time is wasted - health can be jeopardized. Simple matters become complicated. An urgent matter can become a health emergency. Emergencies can become matters of life and death. These "matters" and the anxiety that accompanies them can be greatly lessened or alleviated with the right travel medical insurance.

Travel medical insurance can provide you additional peace of mind while traveling outside your home country. The right travel insurance will include a broad range of coverage and services for any health emergency, such as:

Check Mark Comprehensive medical insurance
Check Mark 24 hour emergency assistance
Check Mark Emergency medical evacuation
Check Mark Access to quality, English speaking healthcare providers worldwide
Check Mark Pre-existing condition coverage
Check Mark Online tools such as country and city reports and health & safety
Check Mark Most travel medical insurance plans have exclusions or restriction for pre-existing conditions. However, there is one plan we offer that covers pre-existing conditions if the applicant(s) is a U.S. resident with an existing domestic health insurance policy. For more information, please contact us.

Riders

Often the purpose for traveling abroad is to enjoy higher risk physical activities, such as skiing, scuba diving and hiking. Many plans do not cover these types of activities unless specifically stated in the policy. These and other activities can be covered with an additional rider to your medical travel insurance policy. Please read plan brochures and policies thoroughly to understand the exclusions in coverage and the details of riders as they do vary with plans.

High Risk Travel Concerns

For those of you who might be traveling to countries with high security risks, please contact us for appropriate plan options. We offer a full line of specialty travel products not found with traditional insurance brokers. Whether the purpose of travel is leisure, business or humanitarian, we provide the best products options available.
