You should know that your US health insurance may provide little or no coverage while you are abroad. Most policies limit international coverage to “emergency only” or “life threatening” situations.
For instance, if you were to fall and break a bone, contract a simple case of influenza, get food poisoning or suffer other common accidents or sicknesses, your US health insurance policy may not pay your expenses unless you can convince your insurer that it was a serious emergency.
There is a simple and inexpensive solution - our USAway international travel medical policy, underwritten at Lloyd’s of London, will give you peace of mind while traveling for up to a year outside the USA. Please note that war risks and pre-existing conditions are not covered under standard USAway policies. If you need coverage for these kinds of risks, please contact us.
