Here is some other key points to keep in mind about our Outreach Group Travel short term team travel insurance:
- There is no PPO networks outside of the U.S. There may be hospitals that will do direct billing, but not usually in remote places, such as PNG Papua New Guinea) . As with most travel insurance, one would pay their medical expenses out-of-pocket and then submit a claim for reimbursement. If surgery or major hospitalization occurs, this needs to be pre-certified and a guarantee of payment letter may be requested.
- If someone thinks they may need to be medically evacuated, then of course IMG, the insurance company, needs to be called immediately, so that they can make arrangements, if it is determined that this is needed. The sooner IMG, is informed the sooner they can make things happen.
- Regarding coverage for those 65 and over, coverage for the sudden and unexpected recurrence of a pre-existing condition is limited to $2,500.
- Also, medical evacuation for the sudden and unexpected recurrence of a pre-existing condition is limited to $25,000 regardless of age.
- If you have travelers who are concerned about having better coverage for pre-existing conditions, especially those over the age of 64, we recommend the Voyager Choice travel medical insurance at https://www.gninsurance.com/travel/geoblue-voyager/#excursion.
