It’s a pretty incredible time of year if you’re living where seasons change. The grass is still green, the leaves are changing colors and beginning to float to the ground, and there’s a crispness in the air. While we want to bask in the present moment and enjoy all things Fall, we know that the holiday season is soon approaching. And for many, that means travelling!
As insurance industry professionals we are hardwired and/or trained to educate others on ways to plan for the unexpected. So if you, a client, or someone you know is anticipating overseas travel, an International Medical Insurance policy should be taken into consideration.
Why? Anything can happen!
Picture yourself savoring the taste of delicacies from a foreign land then uh oh, food poisoning! Or taking in your exotic surroundings and oh no, twisting your ankle! It can be aggravating enough to have to tend to these small things at home let alone a new place where you may not speak the language or know the lay of the land. This is where an International Medical policy steps in to help, especially if you need to be transported to another area to get the care you need!
Policies will vary based on needs, travel time, deductibles, and amount of coverage…but that’s why we are here to simplify and guide you through the various products and options available.
Common plans include:
Individual & Family
Employer Sponsored Group Plans
Student Exchange Programs, International Students, & Student Travel
Extreme Athletics & Adventure
Marine Crew & Captain Members
Even if you have a tendency to over pack, do not fret! An International Medical Insurance policy won’t take up any space and you and your clients will be happy to have “brought it” along!
