travel medical insurance Greensboro, North Carolina

Everybody deserves a good vacation that is free from stress about any medical emergency. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of people who opt for travel insurance has risen 24 percent. As traveling becomes more feasible and safe in the late stages of this pandemic, more people have said they are planning on traveling this year. Your perspective has likely changed about traveling and the protection you may need before heading off. Travel medical insurance exists just for this purpose. In fact, the U.S. State Department encourages travelers to purchase at least a supplemental short-term travel insurance plan.

Travel medical insurance pays a refund if a medical emergency occurs during your trip. Many people rely on these plans since most insurance plans, Medicare included, do not cover medically necessary evacuations and may not provide direct payments to international hospitals and providers. The two main benefits provided is Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation & Repatriation. Emergency Medical reimburses the costs of medical treatment for an emergency during your trip. Medical Evacuation coverage gives you transportation to the nearest hospital if the emergency requires it. The price of your plan will depend on the length of your stay, the age of those traveling, the total cost of the trip and the amount of coverage you select.

Vacations should be a break from the stress that you deal with in your daily life, not an addition to it. Making sure you’re covered even while away from home gives you one less thing to worry about. Purchase a travel medical insurance plan and give you and your family the peace of mind you deserve as you enjoy your time away.
