Short Term Health Insurance – The Flexible Solution You Need on Your International VacationFiled Under: Blogging
Although you may have a great health insurance plan in your home country, it likely does not cover incidents occurring abroad. Most policies only cover domestic activities, thanks to network restrictions and other such limitations. So when you and your family leave for an exciting international adventure, you will need an additional form of insurance to cover the areas your existing policy does not.
Short term health insurance is designed specifically for such situations. You can purchase it to cover the types of care you may need, and you can also purchase it for the amount of time you need. So if you are going away for 2 weeks, you do not have to worry that you will be forced into buying a year's worth of coverage that you may not really need. This flexibility makes it a unique and appealing plan for vacationers.
While getting sick or injured during your vacation isn't exactly at the top of your mind, it is a very real risk any time anyone travels anywhere. And international travel makes one especially susceptible, with jet lag, general fatigue, and potentially unhealthy water and food. These factors can actually make it more likely that you get ill, so it's definitely a good idea to maximize your protection with the convenience of a short term plan.
