Some suggest more travelers should consider health insurance options before traveling.
Chicago (WiredPRNews.com) – Experts are stating that more international travelers need to consider health care insurance options before traveling. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), with thousands of travelers from the U.S. being flown back annually as a result of health related issues that surface unexpectedly, travel health insurance is deemed important for the protection of travelers in medical emergencies that may occur on their trip.
Dan McGinnity, vice president for North America for Travel Guard, is quoted by the AP as stating of the matter, “Americans have the concept that when they travel, their health insurance travels with them.”
As noted in the report, experts suggest that those who have health insurance consider supplementary coverage in the event that their policy does not cover items such as transportation back to the country when a medical emergency occurs abroad.
