Some American businesses with employees who travel often provide travel insurance that covers evacuations and medical care for their employees, but most don’t. The majority of Americans who travel for business simply don’t think about it.
The average medical evacuation from China to the U.S. runs as high as $180,000. Without travel insurance coverage to pay that bill, will your employer chip in to ship you home? If not, will your family have to spread that across multiple credit cards or get an emergency second mortgage to get you home?
Business travelers who travel regularly to other countries need to understand their employee benefits and their medical coverage. If a sudden crippling illness happens while you are in Spain or Argentina, can you get the medical care you need? If not, can they transport you back home where you can? Who will pay for those expenses?
Frequent business travelers have affordable options to keep themselves and their families safe while they travel – even if the company won’t foot the bill.
- If your medical coverage extends outside the U.S., consider rounding out your coverage with Medical Evacuation Insurance.
- If your medical coverage does not extend outside the U.S., consider adding an annual Travel Medical Insurance plan to your insurance portfolio.
- If you just want international travel accident protection and simple term life benefits, take a look at the Travel Accident Insurance plans that are available.
