Visitor Medical Insurance: Why You Need It
It’s finally here, holiday season. You’ve been waiting since, well, last holiday for this day to finally come. The bags are packed, the kids have their iPods and video games, and you’re ready to go. Wait, are you sure you’ve thought of everything? Have you purchased visitor medical insurance for you and your family? While it’s not necessarily the most fun item to add to your to-do list, visitor medical insurance is essential when you’re out and about visiting your family and going to your favorite spots. It’s like sun block for your family’s financial future. In many cases, your existing health insurance policy may not cover you outside your home country, or at least drastically decrease the amount they cover.
Visitor medical insurance policies are available for worldwide coverage, during a period anywhere from 5 days to 1 year. No matter where you go, how long you stay, or what you do, having visitor medical insurance when traveling abroad can help to protect your wallet. Even if your vacation plans only consist of eating tons of Great Aunt Cecelia’s meatballs and not mountain climbing, you should still make sure you’re covered. A bad case of the stomach flu could turn into a large medical expense if you aren’t prepared. In some cases, you may have to pay these expenses up front while in a foreign country.
Visitor medical insurance can help cover those emergency medical expenses at a facility where you can receive quality care. You can also get policies that cover a medical evacuation, just in case the closest thing to a doctor on your holiday is the local village veterinarian.
