Travel Medical
(also known as International Medical Insurance)

Travel Medical Insurance reimburses you for emergency medical expenses incurred when you are traveling or living in a foreign country.

  • Maximum coverage levels can be substantial enough (up to US$2 million) to cover major medical expenses such as emergency surgery and extended hospital stays.
  • The "American-style" of international medical insurance coverage requires you to pay the specified deductible (excess in the UK) and co-insurance also known as co-pay before the insurer pays any expenses.
  • Plans often require pre-certification by the insurer prior to hospital admission abroad.
  • When hospitalization is necessary, many insurers provide a guarantee of hospital admission, and some insurers provide direct payments to hospitals
  • When hospitalization is not necessary, most insurers require a claim form to be submitted for reimbursement of covered expenses for basic treatment by a physician and outpatient medical services.

Plans usually include coverage for emergency medical evacuation, reunion, repatriation of remains, accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D), and various other 24/7 travel assistance services.
