‘Tis the season for travel which means that we need to take extra precautions while we are on trips. If you’re like me, you will be sure to pack everything you could possibly need while you are away from home but one thing I came across recently (and had honestly never thought of until now) is travel medical insurance. Nothing is ever guaranteed, and that includes our safety, so it is SO worth the peace of mind to include travel insurance through MedEx at United Healthcare Global with all of my other trip preparations.
Travel medical insurance offers more than just a trip cancellation policy, it offers security in a not-so-secure world. If I or a family member becomes ill or is injured while traveling abroad I need to know (as a wife and mother) that we will all be taken care of! Many medical facilities require up-front payment before they will give any kind of treatment but with my medical policy from MedEx I don’t have to worry about that! MedEx will cover these payments and other expenses which includes monitoring, emergency travel arrangements, transfer of insurance info and much more! A MedEx policy will help…
- Keep medical costs in line
- Find quality care
- Get home in a medical emergency
- Handle non-medical problems (such as a lost or stolen passport or money transfer)
- Safeguard what we have already invested into our vacation
For only a few dollars a day I can go on vacation with my family with the assurance that we will be well taken care of should the need arise! As a mom I find that I have plenty of other things to worry about so if I can add one more thing to my list of things not to worry about then sign me up!
So now that we know how important it is to have travel insurance now we need to know what we do next! Travel insurance can be purchased from MedEx of UnitedHealthcare Global.* We have a choice of coverage and deductible levels, sports riders, lost baggage coverage, and more. Staffed by UnitedHealthcare Global professionals, the MedEx Emergency Response Center is ready to help 24 hours a day year-round.
We hear stories all the time of people who have emergencies while they’re overseas, whether it be for work or vacation, and they find themselves in a sticky situation. I do NOT want that to be me and with the help of MedEx of UnitedHealthcare Global, I no longer have to worry about that!
*Travel insurance plans are not available for purchase for residents of Washington State or New York.
