The Good: Offered at two plan levels – Silver and Gold – this plan is for the frequent traveler, providing travel medical coverage, including coverage for pre-existing medical conditions, for all trips of less than 70 days each in a 12-month period. This plan includes coverage for non emergency and emergency medical care as well as medical evacuations and repatriation.
The Drawbacks: Travelers are required to be U.S. residents and have a primary health plan. Benefit limits inside the U.S. are limited. Repatriation amount – depending on where you are traveling – may not be adequate.
The Bottom Line: This is a multi-trip travel medical plan offered at two plan levels for travelers up to age 84 (benefit limits reduced for those age 70-84). It is designed for U.S. residents traveling outside their home country for up to a year and covers individuals and families.
