Why should you buy health insurance and assistance for international travel through Flagship Insurance and HTH WorldwideTravel?
Reason 1: Sickness, Accident and Medical Evacuation Benefits:
During your trip or international experience you may need to see a doctor, have a prescription filled, receive care at a hospital, or deal with an unexpected medical emergency.
- Many health plans, including Medicare don’t cover illnesses or injuries incurred outside the United States. Some plans will cover such expenses, but at a reduced rate.
- Most health plans do not cover medical evacuation, which can cost $100,000 or more.
The Sickness, Accident and Medical Evacuation benefits provided can help protect you against these unforeseeable circumstances. In addition, the Global Medical Assistance Service that is included provides round-the-clock support that may help you handle an unforeseen emergency.
Reason 2: Appointment Scheduling and Direct Pay-Paperless, Cashless, Convenient
Members can call or email request appointments with doctors and hospitals in HTH’s strategically built International Community. Your travel medical plan makes the appointment for you and arranges to pay the doctor or hospital directly through their Direct Pay service. They’ll even waive the deductible if a member sees a participating physician.
