RoamRight MERS Position Statement

Published by Aidan Harvey May 19, 2014

Released: 5/16/2014

Under RoamRight travel insurance policies, the threat of MERS and other illnesses is not a covered reason for trip cancellation, unless a “cancel for any reason” plan has been purchased. However, if a traveler covered by a RoamRight policy contracts MERS during their trip, RoamRight will cover medical expenses up to the policy limits. Travelers needing assistance can contact RoamRight’s assistance provider, On Call International, by calling 1-443-279-7335 collect.
