Travel Medical Assistance Coverage

This coverage typically consists of emergency medical assistance services involving the following:

  • Finding a doctor or local medical amenity – when a member of your travelling group or you is injured or unwell, and you are travelling in an unfamiliar locality, an aiding services team will be assigned to help you find the closest suitable medical aid.
  • Help with translation assistance – If you’re travelling in a foreign country and are unaware of the language, leaving you without any comprehension of what the doctors and nurses are telling you about the medical condition and its diagnosis, the assistance services team will help you with the required translation service.
  • Remunerating your hospital bill – when a member of your group or you has to be admitted to a hospital, this team will guarantee or make remittance, up to the cost limited by the policy you have applied to, to guarantee your emergency medical care.
  • Monitoring of your condition – when a member of your travelling group or you is hospitalized, the assistance services will keep your family members or friends posted about your health.
  • Transferring you to a hospital or medical clinic – if you are gravely ill or injured, the travel assistance services team will locate the closest facility that can provide you with an adequate medical plan. Then transportation charges will be paid by the insurance company and a medical escort will also be arranged, when/ if needed.

Furthermore, along with the transportation and repatriation coverage included in a travel insurance plan, the coverage may include the following services too:

Returning you home after your medical care – After you are medically stable, the travel assistance team will determine the type of transportation necessary to get you back home or to a medical facility close to your home. This will be decided based on the policy and the limited amount, for transportation in the policy. In fact, if the travel insurance policy permits, even the unused tickets are reimbursed.

Returning your body if you die – If you lose your life  on a covered trip, the assistance services team will pay for the charges to bring your body back to your home. The team can also communicate with your family about the demise, while also determining what to do with your body.

All travel insurance plans have an assistance services line where you can receive help with travel medical emergencies, but the level of service provided by each company will only be limited to assistance. This type of coverage doesn't provide you directly with your medical aid, but only help you, and guide you through it.

When you travel, be it domestically or internationally, you will need to have insurance cover. Many unforeseen events take place, and this could lead you into trouble. However, if you have insurance cover, you will be able to tackle these problems easily.
