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 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 .

Do you travel frequently throughout the year for business or pleasure ? For possibly several weeks or months at a time ? Want to avoid the hastle of having to take out a single trip travel medical policy each and every time before your trip ? Afraid you'll forget to take it out in time or not at all ?
Never forget again, as multi trip travel medical insurance is "one and done" for unlimited international trips in any given year. Programs range from offering trip durations up to 70 days, coverage for pre-existing conditions and to be eligible you would need to maintain a primary health insurance plan stateside (ie; Medicare, ACA, or other primary or group medical plan)
