Common Questions & Answers About Travel Medical Insurance:
Travel health insurance is a special policy designed to cover your health and medical expenses in case you become sick or injured while on a trip. It is designed to only be short term (while you travel) and mainly for traveling outside of your home country. No one wants to think of the worst case scenario when it comes to planning their trip, but careful planning can save you time, money, and risk.
Deciding whether you need travel medical insurance depends on the risks and costs of needing health insurance while abroad. For example, it is not uncommon to get sick because of dietary changes in certain foreign countries. It is also good to know that you have domestic medical coverage when dealing with unknown foreign health agencies, who may incorrectly bill you for your medical needs.
Before purchasing travel medical insurance, you will want to check with your current medical insurance provider to be sure you are not already covered as well. Even if you are covered, getting a second plan may be beneficial if your current plan is limited, or insufficient on adequate coverage. In this way, your travel medical health coverage can act as a backup, or secondary insurance to your primary insurance, covering unexpected out-of-pocket costs. And with the costs of travel insurance being temporary, you don’t have to worry about paying for this coverage indefinitely.
