Travel insurance is not the same as health insurance. Especially when you’re traveling abroad, it’s important to know how travel medical insurance can help.
Seven Corners Travel Medical Insurance provides insurance benefits such as coverage for medical expenses, and non-insurance services like 24/7 multilingual travel assistance and emergency medical evacuation, making it a wise purchase for your next trip.
A travel medical plan provides a wide variety of medical benefits and non-insurance emergency services that are important if you become sick or hurt on a trip outside your home country.
It also covers medical expenses for an injury or illness that occurs on your trip. You need this protection because your home health insurance may not follow you on travels abroad. And, if it does, it often covers only life-threatening emergencies defined by your health insurance company, and their definition of an emergency may not match yours.
Medical providers in foreign countries may require you to pay before they treat you. Seven Corners Travel Medical Insurance includes an international medical provider directory with many providers who have direct pay agreements with us, so you won’t have to pay upfront for care.
Travel medical plans also cover emergency medical evacuations. If appropriate medical care is not available in your location, we will pay to transport you to an area with the care you need. Seven Corners must also arrange the evacuation. Together, this can save you money and headache. On the other hand, without a travel medical plan, you may have to pay from $500 to $200,000 for an evacuation as well as arrange this evacuation and find an appropriate medical facility. Seven Corners Travel Medical Insurance removes these challenges.
Seven Corners’ travel medical plans also provide additional emergency services including political evacuation, natural disaster evacuation, and coverage for an injury due to a terrorist event.
And finally, when you are far from home facing a difficult situation, there is no substitute for a helping hand. Our multilingual travel assistance team is available to help you 24/7.
Seven Corners Travel Medical Insurance plans provide coverage for treatment if you contract COVID-19 while traveling. Please review your plan document carefully to understand your plan’s benefits and exclusions and contact one of our licensed travel insurance agents with any questions.
