If you get sick overseas, are you covered by insurance or will you pay out-of-pocket?
Good question! And certainly a question you need to be asking now as opposed to when it happens.
The answer depends on what you need so here’s what you need to ask your insurance provider:
1. Does my policy cover emergency evacuations?
2. Does my domestic policy cover health care internationally?
3. Will it pay for travel if I need to unite with a family member, such as a sick child or spouse?
Make sure you understand exactly what you policy will cover and consider buying travel insurance that includes medical evacuations and trip interruptions. You can do a comparison of plans on www.insuremytrip.com.
