Can a travel insurance policy cover a medical emergency in the Dominican Republic?

Last Updated:

Yes, a travel insurance policy can reimburse you for the costs of treatment in the event of a medical emergency during your trip to the Dominican Republic.

As long as you bought your policy before you left for your trip, and were healthy and stable at the time of purchase, your travel insurance policy can cover you in the event of a medical emergency during your trip. This includes Emergency Medical coverage and Medical Evacuation coverage.

Emergency Medical can reimburse the costs to treat a medical emergency during your trip. Squaremouth recommends a policy with at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage for international travel, and at least $100,000 for cruises or travel to a remote location.

Medical Evacuation can transport you to the nearest adequate medical facility in the event of a medical emergency during your trip. Most policies with Medical Evacuation coverage will transport you to the nearest adequate medical facility, however, if the treating physician determines you should return home to receive further medical attention, this benefit can also cover those transportation expenses.

This information may vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available from 8am to 10pm ET, seven days a week, and are delighted to help!
