  • International Business Travelers Trust Short Term Health Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging
"I am headed abroad for my first international business trip. It will likely be the only such trip I make all year, so I do not want to commit to a long term plan, as that would be too expensive for my needs. Is there a suitable alternative for me?" That is a frequent question heard from infrequent business travelers, and the answer is yes, there is a great alternative. Short term travel health insurance provides the ideal solution.

Unfortunately, your domestic insurance policy will not cover medical needs arising abroad. So if you are traveling for business and find yourself injured or ill, you will need some form of supplemental insurance care. Otherwise, you will be considered uninsured, and you must pay the full cost of medical treatment from your own pocket. Depending on the severity of your issue, that could yield bills of hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

One of the great things about short term travel health insurance is it allows you to purchase only the amount of care you need. For some international business travelers, an annual plan makes the most sense, because they travel many times a year and spend the majority of the year abroad. But for people who are just traveling once or a few times per year, a more cost effective choice is greatly appreciated.

These plans offer robust coverage for travelers. Doctors visits, prescription medications, hospitalization, surgery, and medical evacuation are all covered. Additionally, you may enjoy travel insurance benefits like lost luggage assistance as part of your plan. This type of insurance truly is the convenient, comprehensive choice for infrequent international business travelers.
