Trekker Choice International Travel Insurance

travel insurance Jun 13, 2016

Trekker Choice International Travel Insurance is a multi-trip travel insurance plan for our clients who are heading overseas for more than two times a year. This is the most cost effective travel insurance option for those who love to travel outside the U.S. for up to 70 days per trip for as many trips in a 12 month period as you want to take.

The Trekker Choice is best for the expat who lives in the U.S. but takes frequent trips overseas and wants a solid travel insurance plan. Having this multi travel plan allows you and I not to have to purchase a travel medical insurance plan each time we leave the U.S.  On average, the third trip onwards on the multi travel plan allows you  and I to come out ahead when thinking about saving on insurance premiums for each trip.  I travel at least two times outside the U.S. and thus feel I get the best bang-for-the-buck when I have this Trekker Choice insurance plan in my back pocket in case I am ever in need of overseas medical care.  We like that Worldwide Insurance Services (parent company of the GeoBlue and Worldwide brand) is rock solid, and part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

Q: Why have this type of international travel insurance benefit?

A: An emergency medical evacuation from overseas can easily cost upwards of $100,000 or more. Many domestic health plans do include some foreign medical emergency travel benefits however coverage may be limited, include heavy copays or deductibles, and may not pay for emergency medical transportation.

A: This is for those on Medicare Supplement / Gap plans:  A Medicare Supplement plan that includes Foreign Medical Emergency benefits provides a $50,000 lifetime maximum benefit and provides reimbursement of 80% of your foreign emergency medical expenses. There is also a $250 deductible per occurrence. That is simply not enough coverage.  This is why the Trekker Choice is a great option, especially for seniors.
