Will my coverage extend if I’m quarantined due to MERS?

Last Updated:

Yes, typically your coverage will automatically extend if you are unable to return home on your scheduled return date due to an unexpected illness or hospitalization.

Typically a policy will extend 5 – 7 days, or until you exceed your medical coverage limits, whichever comes first.  Coverage will end upon return to your city of residence.

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 24/7 and are delighted to help!
