On Friday, July 22, 2016 a gunman shot and killed nine people in Munich, Germany and then himself. Travelers in Munich can anticipate tighter security measures in the vicinity of the Olympia shopping center while investigations into the attack are ongoing.

If it is declared an act of terrorism, these tragic events may meet the guidelines and requirements for coverage under certain GeoBlue travel medical plans and this position statement will be updated at that time.

As of 7/25/2016, the U.S. Department of State has not identified this as a terrorist attack. If and when they do, these tragic events will meet the guidelines and requirements for coverage under certain GeoBlue travel medical plans.
