Insurance & Travel Resources


International travel can be an exciting adventure, but it can also bring many unpredictable situations if you should need medical care while you're abroad. Via Lingua suggests  that  US citizens and non-US citizens explore and research credible international insurance resources to ease the stress of an unfamiliar culture or medical system. 

If you currently have insurance coverage from your home country, often these policies do not cover you while you are outside your home country.  It is important to be sure you have International Medical Insurance and Medical Evacuation coverage while you are outside your home country to cover you for any unexpected illness or injury. 

It is important to be sure you have International Medical Insurance and Medical Evacuation coverage while you are outside your home country to cover you for any unexpected illness or injury. Insurance Plans are available from a minimum of 5 days up to a maximum of one year, and additional plans may be purchased for future periods.
