Why we like it:
WE RECOMMEND the Travel Medical Evacuation Insurance for travel more than 150 miles away from home. We like that it has no exclusions for Pre-Existing Conditions and no deductibles. It features daily, annual, and semi-annual rates for up to age 84 may purchase without requiring a medical form.
It is unique in that it can also be used for emergencies connected to medical tourism/travel.
NOTE: This plan is “evacuation-only” (medical transportation), not travel health insurance or international student insurance. (All of our international health insurance plans include emergency evacuation as a benefit.) Please make sure you are covered in a medical emergency before purchasing stand-alone medical transportation only.
