Overseas medical insurance for mission organizations and missionaries requires provisions not met by many companies. The typical career missionary and his/her family will travel overseas for a period of one to four years and return home for furlough, deputation or educational continuation, then return to the mission field. Another scenerio would involve short-term outreach mission trips to international or domestic locations, typically from a few days to many weeks or months at a time.
At GRB we have been providing such international mission medical & health insurance plans for short-term outreach trips and for long-term career missionaries and their families in the international field and back home for decades. We also provide exclusive comprehensive international coverage for small or large mission sending organizations & groups. If you are a large mission sending organization needing long term annually renewable major medical insurance for your group, you can request a group quote here or contact us for personalized service via phone.
Many times the primary medical insurance in your home country will not cover you while traveling abroad and often will not provide important services, perhaps essential ones, in the event of an illness or injury. Single trip travel medical insurance includes these essentials such as translation assistance during treatment, doctor and hospital referrals, and assistance replacing lost prescriptions.
Single trip travel medical insurance policies provide short term medical coverage for travel from as little as 5 days up to 12 months in length or longer, depending on the particular plan design.
Coverage can be used for US Citizens/ Residents traveling worldwide, as well as foreign nationals visiting the United States. Most plans can be renewed up to 3 years maximum, but you may want to consider a worldwide missionary major medical annual insurance policy if traveling 6 months to one year or longer. International travel medical insurance plans cover for illness, sickness, accidents, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, common carrier and general accidental death & dismemberment, bedside visitation of family, among other unique additional benefits. A few will cover acts of terrorism worldwide and high adventure sporting coverage options .
