Why do I need Additional Medical Coverage?
While most destinations you’ll visit on your vacations will have medical facilities, the costs for medical treatments vary from place to place.
If you’re planning to travel to a country or location that is known for higher medical costs – or if your upcoming trip includes adventurous activities – it’s a good idea to consider including the Additional Medical Coverage in your policy. It can help protect you if an accident occurs and you’re stuck with a hefty medical bill.
Another benefit of Additional Medical Coverage is during moments that might call for an emergency evacuation or repatriation of remains. If either situation were to occur, this upgrade will provide reimbursement for incurred expenses up to $500,000.
How is Additional Medical Coverage different from the Emergency Medical and Dental Expenses benefit?
While the Emergency Medical and Dental Expenses benefit and the Additional Medical Coverage upgrade cover the same type of unexpected incidents, the upgrade enables you to add an extra layer of financial protection to your trip. The Additional Medical Coverage upgrade includes an additional $50,000 in medical expense coverage and $500,000 in medical evacuation coverage on top of what is already included in the Emergency Medical and Dental Expense and Emergency Medical Evacuation & Repatriation benefits.
Which Travelex travel insurance plans offer this upgrade?
The Additional Medical Coverage upgrade is only available for inclusion on the Travel Select plan. If you purchase Travel Basic or either flight insurance plans you are unable to include this upgrade on your policy.
