Going Overseas, Consider International Travel Insurance

I travel overseas quite a bit, some for work and some for business. It is important to remember that your health insurance that you have in the U.S. rarely covers you if you need medical treatment outside the country.

I found this out on a trip to the Philippines where I woke up with a bad stomach ache. Fortunately the hotel clinic was able to handle it because I knew the hospitals require payment before you can check out and if it were serious it could have been quite expensive. It would have been so much easier to check with before I went on my trip to ensure I was covered.

Before you travel overseas, check with your health insurance provider and if they don't cover you, which most don't, Click here for a FREE international health insurance quote.

It is better to make sure you are covered when you travel overseas and it will give you some piece of mind.
