Going on a Trip? Better Pack Health Insurance
If you are planning a trip overseas, it is important to make sure you have health coverage when you arrive at your destination. In most cases, Medicare won’t cover medical care outside of the United States and the same may be true of private insurers, as well.
While some people are willing to take a gamble that they won’t need medical care while abroad, more and more countries are requiring that you have insurance before you enter their borders. According to an article in TRAVEL+LEISURE, Some Countries Require You to Have Travel Insurance, Others Aren’t Far Behind, countries such as Cuba and Russia mandate that travelers from overseas have health insurance and other countries like Japan are mulling the change to mandatory health insurance coverage for visitors. Travel experts suggest visiting the U.S. Department of State website to learn about the specific requirements of the country or countries you plan to visit.
The fact is, health insurance coverage is always important – whether it is mandated or not. At Flaxbeard Insurance Advisors, we will make sure you are never without the type and amount of health insurance you need – no matter where are. Give us a call at (402) 616-7172 to learn more.
