Travel Medical Insurance

More and more Americans are traveling abroad for leisure, business, or are living abroad for extended periods of time. Often domestic insurance policies do not cover all of the possible issues that you may encounter while traveling. Travel medical insurance acts as a supplement to your existing plan, or as your primary insurance while oversees if you do not have a policy.

The Benefits of Travel Medical Insurance

Travel medical insurance may provide the following coverage:

  • Hospitalizations
  • Physician office visits
  • Ambulance services
  • Emergency medical evacuation
  • Injury incurred during a terrorist act
  • Prescription medication
  • Translator tools

Of course you may add more benefits to you policy depending on your anticipated needs. Travel medical insurance is typically offered for three types of travelers:

  • Long term plans
    • Expatriates living abroad for more than 6 months
  • Short term business plans
    • Cover international travel up to 180 days
  • Short term individual and family plans
    • Designed for international leisure travel up to 180 days

What to look out for when purchasing Travel Medical Insurance

Regardless of the coverage you choose, be sure that you consider admitted and non-admitted plans and their overall ratings before making a final decision. Admitted providers are licensed and regulated by your local department of insurance. Non-admitted providers are not licensed or regulated by the department of insurance.

Client Testimonials

Travel Medical Insurance | Wooten Agency

  • "This is a family-owned business who cares about their potential clients. I was looking for help with health insurance and even though it turns out I don't need new health insurance at this time, I feel compelled to write a review because of how thorough Brendan was. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. He didn't seem pushy at all and listened to everything I had to say. He made sure he was getting all the information correct. I would recommend this agency for any insurance needs." - Doug C.
  • "I sought help from Wooten Agency; Ed, along with Nancy, took the bull by the horns and sorted things out for us very quickly. Shortly thereafter Ginny took over. She is definitely most qualified as a plan selector for Medicare plans and issues related to Medicare. My appreciation to Crystal for the gracious way she always responds to telephone calls and makes every effort to ensure one is not forgotten. And Dana....the one contact we had was enough to find out you are similarly inclined to help a client." - Frank V.
  • "You [Aaron] have been so helpful, and you have all taken a personal interest in my individual and specific questions in order to make the best insurance choices for my needs. Thank you all! I look forward to working together in the future months and years." - Susan H.
