How do you account for healthcare expenses and/or emergencies while travelling abroad? The fact is most health insurance policies do not cover international travel. You need specialized travel coverage for trips to other countries.
We can help. Our international health policies cover a wide range of benefits for those travelling abroad. They are also designed for those who live abroad, but also need coverage when back in the United States.
We offer policies for individuals, families, students, faculty, expatriates, missionaries, groups, corporations, captains, crews and more.
More About Travel Insurance Policies
You don’t want restrictions on what is and what’s not covered while abroad. A strong policy has no pre-certification requirements and also covers pre-existing conditions. Transportation and medical evacuation are also important. Sometimes the most important feature is simply covering the high costs of transporting a sick or injured individual home – or to a quality healthcare institution nearby.
Furthermore, injuries and illness from terrorist acts need to be covered as well. This is important for missionary, student and faculty groups who are in less secure parts of the world. And while Covid remains a primary concern, you want a policy that covers testing and treatment while in a foreign country. Our policies do all of the above and more.

Understanding Your Current Health Coverage
Whether it’s a group, individual or Medicare policy, you likely only have limited health coverage when travelling outside of the U.S. That’s why it’s important to consider a secondary plan to account for unexpected occurrences during long and/or short term trips abroad.
Travel insurance policies help you access western-trained, english-speaking doctors you can trust with your health and safety. Access to quality care is paramount.
A comprehensive travel policy, like GeoBlue for example, gives you immediate access to concierge health services on demand. Whether it’s telehealth or in-person medical care, one quick call will point you in the right direction.
Short & Long Term International Coverage
International health plans can be purchased for a single trip or multiple trips depending on your needs. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, we have it covered. Accidents, sickness and illness coverage are all built into the policy.
Short term plans can be purchase to account for a week or more to a single destination while multi-trip plans can cover you if you’re visiting more than one country. We also offer long term plans for expatriates, boat captains, crew members, missionaries, students, faculty and those who are living or working abroad. Whether you need a plan for just a week – or a policy to cover you year round, we can help.
For single and multi-trip plans, you will need to have an existing major medical plan already. ACA, group, short term and Medicare coverage would qualify, for example. This ensures that preexisting conditions are covered while you’re abroad.
Long term travel insurance can be purchased that would cover your care abroad and also when you’re back in the United States. This is helpful for those who don’t spend much time in the U.S., but want the option to come home for major services.
Travel, Baggage And Trip Interruption Coverage
We all know there are the occasional hiccups when travelling internationally. Our travel plans cover trip interruptions and also help with baggage and your personal effects.
Policies pay up to $500 for both situations – and up to $100 per personal item. While these policies are primarily designed to cover you for unexpected medical needs, it’s nice to know there are ancillary benefits as well.
