However, it is important to understand the difference between travel medical and travel health insurance.

Travel medical insurance plans, like those offered by Arch RoamRight, only cover trips of a maximum of 180 days and can provide coverage for medical emergencies, such as broken bones or emergency surgeries.
Travel health insurance is for trips longer than 180 days and usually provides coverage for preventative care, doctor visits, and elective surgeries. Arch RoamRight does not offer travel health insurance.
