Good Morning, U.S. Citizen Community and friends.
During the summer, many of you may be taking a break from the heat of Saudi Arabia. If you're traveling, do you have adequate travel insurance for you and your family? Check your overseas medical insurance coverage: Ask your medical insurance company if your policy applies overseas, and if it covers emergency expenses such as medical evacuation. If it does not, consider supplemental insurance
- Travel Insurance insures your financial investment in your trip. Typically it covers such things as the cost of your lost baggage and cancelled flights, but it may or may not cover costs of medical attention you might need while abroad.
- Travel Medical Insurance covers the cost of various levels of overseas medical treatment.
- Medical Evacuation Services provides air ambulance, medical evacuation or medical escort service coverage for overseas travelers.
