Whether you’re going on vacation, studying abroad, or even relocating, get peace of mind before you go.

A Tale of Two Trips: A short but helpful video on the difference travel insurance makes.

Whether you’re away for business or pleasure, studying abroad, or even moving out of the country, travel insurance can protect you in the event of things like:

  • sudden illness
  • accident
  • medical evacuation while outside the country

These plans offer quality care and 24/7 assistance that will locate pre-approved hospitals and physicians with the appropriate skills needed to help you, including language and translation for key medical terms and brand-name drugs.

Travel Insurance & COVID-19

As with all of life, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the travel insurance industry. We’ve highlighted some of those changes here and here. If you have questions about an existing travel insurance plan or if you’re thinking about purchasing a new plan, contact us today and let us help you make sure you have the coverage you need before going abroad in a post-COVID world.

U.S. Healthcare & Overseas Challenges

The excitement of living or traveling abroad needs to be balanced with the reality of health care requirements. Because of how the U.S. health care system works, U.S. citizens and residents traveling for extended periods or living permanently abroad face unique challenges. For example, if you are of Medicare-qualifying age, you are expected to keep Part B of Medicare and Part D of drug coverage, or face penalties for late enrollees. Or if you are not yet eligible for Medicare, the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) may require you to maintain minimum essential coverage or pay income penalties for not complying.

These are just a few of the many insurance-related challenges travelers and expatriates might face, but we can help you navigate the system to find the best plans for your unique situation.
