International Major Medical

You've packed your toothbrush. Your passport is up to date. You have everything you need for that big trip overseas, right? With the ever growing number of foreign missions, and more and more religious and lay employees taking trips overseas, providing for health coverage is an often overlooked requirement for international travel.

Even the U.S. State Department advises the need for insurance in your passport.

"Heath Insurance: Medical costs abroad can be extremely expensive. Does your insurance apply overseas, including medical evacuation, payment of the overseas hospital or doctor, or reimbursement to you later?.... Medicare/Medicaid does not cover healthcarecosts outside the US."

Whether you are taking a brief trip or planning an extended stay, you should be aware that most healthcare coverage, including Medicare, is extremely limited abroad. It is an unfortunate fact that even the best planned trips can be ruined with an illness or injury. Requiring a medical procedure without the means to pay can make the situation even worse.

Coverage is not limited to U.S. citizens traveling abroad, but can also cover both foreign nationals traveling to the U.S. or traveling from one foreign nation to another.

Purchasing an International Major Medical insurance policy not only protects you from the expense associated with medical procedures but also provides you with peace of mind that you will receive the best possible care should the unforeseeable happen. In some cases, this includes airlifting a patient from remote areas to the nearest facility that can provide proper medical treatment.

Many of our policies also provide for such unforeseen events such as, accidental death and dismemberment, repatriation, trip cancellation and even lost luggage.

International Major Medical Insurance is easy to purchase, relatively inexpensive and in many cases can be provided for our clients during a single business day. However, providing the right coverage for our clients varies with every trip. A traveling person may have residence in one nation, citizenship in another and traveling to a third. Other considerations include the travelerís age, health, pre-existing conditions, planned activities, the nations they will be visiting and length of their trip.

Burri Insurance Group has established a reputation of providing tailor- made group health policies by working with numerous service providers to custom build a product that exactly meets the needs of our clients. We utilize this same philosophy with our International Major Medical products as well.
