Travel insurance carriers discuss how coverage is affected and announce new product features on their websites, newsletters and blogs. The following is from a recent Travel Guard agent newsletter and it discusses non-medical evacuation coverage now available in the medevac plan.
The MedEvac Plan available through Travel Guard is a great option for your clients who would like coverage for medical expenses on their trip. Available to individuals and families on either a per-trip or annual basis (some states excluded), this plan provides worldwide travel medical evacuation coverage that can transport your clients or a covered family member to the hospital of their choice, or home if medically necessary.
New to this plan is an additional $100,000 of Security Evacuation expense coverage. This coverage can be helpful in the event that an occurrence would take place during a trip outside their home country requiring them to seek transportation to the nearest place of safety.
