TRAVEL MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR GROUPS & INDIVIDUALS
Travel medical insurance is designed to provide a valuable healthcare protection when leaving your home country. However, most U.S. health insurance plans offer very limited or no coverage abroad to help in the case of an emergency. For instance, Medicare offers no overseas benefits for seniors. Therefore, the travel insurance coverage is designed to supplement health insurance at home, but not replace it. This gives you an extra security blanket in the case of medical emergency.
Group Corporate Plans
Group Corporate Plans are designed to meet the needs of companies that are sending employees globally for less than 6 months. Unlike regular travel medical plans, preexisting conditions are typically covered. Pricing is based on how many days or weeks of travel the entire company projects over the next 12 months.
