Many United States citizens don’t realize that they might not be covered by their health insurance when they travel abroad. Many private companies, as well as Medicare and Medicaid programs, do not cover emergency treatment outside of the country; should an emergency occur, you and your family could incur medical bills that you need to pay for out of your own pocket.
A recent survey commissioned by UStiA*, the United States Travel Insurance Association, concluded that “traditional domestic health insurance plans typically limit coverage for out-of-country medical expenses to emergency-related costs; have high deductibles and co-pays for emergency treatment abroad; and don't cover out-of-country emergency medical transportation in cases of life threatening illness where medical evacuation may be required. Additionally, the study revealed that 50% of Medicare recipients may not be covered abroad, and, when covered, benefits are normally limited to 80% of emergency treatment costs, with a $250 deductible.”
These gaps in coverage can create financial and access to quality care risk for you and your family. Safe Travels International, Trip Protection, Missionary Care, and Cost Saver Plans provide quality coverage at affordable rates for primary, secondary, and trip cancellation and interruption coverage. For Students, our Study Abroad Insurance Plan provides a fixed schedule of benefits and a great fixed price.
