Why Have Travel Health Insurance?
Well, if you have a trip and fall in Greece, and need stiches at an ER, they don’t know who (Anthem, Blue Shield, Kaiser, Healthnet) is. But they DO know who VISA, Mastercard and American Express are! They will ding your card a large sum before they will see you. You then have to file for reimbursement upon your return. Also, some plans have limits on out-of-US coverage. For these reasons, I highly recommend Travel Health Insurance from Anthem/GeoBlue. They have an international network of Doctors and Hospitals, an international toll-free number to call. That same trip and fall – you call them, they will GPS you to the nearest network provider and payment arrangements are done before you get there.
