When you travel abroad, one of the most important financial considerations is how to protect you and your family's health. Without proper coverage, an illness or injury abroad can turn into a financial disaster. Whether you are a corporate traveler, an international student studying abroad, a family on vacation or reunion, or an individual traveling abroad for work, pleasure, or education, don't let your trip be ruined by an accident or unexpected medical emergency. Traditional sources of U.S. private health insurance will not meet your needs. Geographical exclusions and provider limitations common to these policies will restrict or even eliminate the coverage available to you while you are outside the U.S. At the same time, you may not be eligible for participation in the government-sponsored plans in the country where you reside.
