Why do I need travel health insurance?
If you already have health insurance, why would you need travel medical insurance too?
Because your insurance may not travel with you.
Many medical insurance plans do not cover care received outside the United States. This includes Medicare and Medicaid. Travelers on these plans should consider a short-term travel health insurance policy.
Additionally, many health plans under the Affordable Care Act do not cover care received in other states. So even domestic travelers may need a medical travel insurance policy.
How Travel Medical Insurance Saves Money
If your insurance doesn't provide coverage when traveling, you could end up paying expensive medical bills. Medical emergencies are costly, and expenses can add up quickly.
How quickly? One man had a medical emergency in Europe and required an air ambulance flight back to the United States. His expenses came to $117,000. Fortunately, he had travelers health insurance from RoamRight.
