Today, more and more people are traveling outside of their home country, either for business, recreation or personal reasons. Frequently, domestic health insurance
does not provide coverage for overseas medical
emergencies, and international travelers are unable to obtain this type of protection after they are outside of their home country.
Furthermore, most traditional health insurance
does not provide coverage for expenses for an emergency medical
evacuation, medical reunion, return of mortal remains, trip interruption or loss of checked luggage.
