Medical travel insurance that can cover Covid-19 is required for all visitors into Argentina. Although the country doesn’t have a set amount required, this insurance must cover all medical expenses related to Covid-19, including quarantine, transportation, and hospital stays.
Travelers must meet the requirements set by the Argentina government. This means buying a travel insurance policy with the following benefits: Emergency Medical, Medical Evacuation, and Travel Delay.
Medical Coverage and Evacuation: Since Argentina doesn’t set a minimum requirement, Squaremouth recommends a minimum of $50,000 Emergency Medical benefit and $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage that specifically covers Covid-19 for those staying in the larger cities in Argentina. This is the standard amount we recommend for international travel.
If a traveler’s plans include remote areas of the country, Squaremouth recommends at least $100,000 in Emergency Medical benefits and $250,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.
Most policies with Emergency Medical coverage can reimburse travelers for medical expenses due to Covid-19, or another sudden illness or injury. This benefit can cover expenses such as hospital stays, physician fees, and other medical costs.
Medical Evacuation and Repatriation coverage offers reimbursement if a traveler needs to be transported either to another hospital or home due to a physician’s recommendation. Emergency Repatriation can cover the costs of returning a traveler’s remains home.
Travel Delay: Travelers must also have coverage if they are required to quarantine in Argentina. Squaremouth recommends a policy that provides $2,000 in Travel Delay coverage to provide adequate coverage for quarantine expenses. This coverage will provide reimbursement for costs such as meals and accommodations incurred from an unforeseen travel delay.
Many medical policies offer comprehensive coverage with other benefits at no additional cost. These benefits may include trip interruption coverage for return transportation, baggage delay or loss, and missed connection coverage.
For travelers concerned about losing non-refundable travel costs, Squaremouth recommends Trip Cancellation coverage. This benefit offers travelers reimbursement for prepaid, non-refundable travel expenses should a traveler need to cancel their trip pre-departure.
This benefit can cover up to 100% of the travel cost if the traveler cancels for a covered reason including unforeseen illness, injury, or death. Other covered reasons can include inclement weather, terrorist attack, or a natural disaster.
