11

A well-planned international vacation can turn into a nightmare because of a travel emergency. Although it’s not something that you wish for, it’s something you must be ready for, just in case. With some preparation, you can avoid medical emergencies or in the unfortunate case of medical emergencies, you can avoid hefty medical bills. If you fall severely ill in a foreign country and don’t know what to do, then this article is for you.

HERE ARE TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID EMERGENCY MEDICAL BILLS ABROAD:

PACK THE RIGHT MEDICINES:

Before going on an international trip, you must speak to your general physician and pack the right medications. The doctor is well aware of your medical history; therefore, he/she is the best person to prescribe precautionary medicines. You could ask your doctor to provide you with medicines for common reasons such as fever, allergy, stomach infection, headache, muscular pain, etc. You must also carry your prescription, doctor’s name, and contact details.

Note: You must avoid travelling when you are already sick. It could make your situation worse.

CHOOSE COMPREHENSIVE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL INSURANCE:

Did you know some countries provide visa only after you submit proof of valid international health insurance policy? Whether you travel frequently or travelling for the first time, you must purchase international travel insurance. The travel insurance covers not only medical emergencies but also protects you from theft, natural calamities, etc. Needless to say, medical costs abroad are much higher and can burn a big hole in your pocket. While you may have accounted for certain emergencies, it is better to be prepared for the worst with a travel health insurance policy. If you are a frequent flyer or are flying with your family, then you must opt for multi-trip travel insurance. However, if you know you are not going to fly more than once a year, then you may choose the single-trip international travel insurance policy.

READ THE HEALTH INSURANCE TERMS CAREFULLY:

Take as much time as you can to read your travel insurance policy document and if you do not understand some terms, feel free to ask your insurer. Don’t assume, because if you misunderstand the policy terms, there is a chance that you will be disappointed in the middle of a stressful medical emergency.
