Medical Emergencies

Not all travelers give much forethought to what will happen if they need medical attention during their trip. But it is certainly smart to plan for it. Travel insurance can help protect you from medical expenses that your normal health insurance does not cover. This type of insurance coverage focuses on medical emergencies such as emergency evacuations and medical expenses. Some plans can even provide coverage for pre-existing conditions, long-term travel, multi-trip renewable protection and much more. Having medical expense coverage is absolutely essential during long trips and is one of the most popular benefits of travel insurance.

Does my health insurance cover me while in Mexico?

Most health insurance plans do not provide full coverage in foreign countries and some health plans provide no coverage at all, including Medicare. Travel insurance works in addition to your everyday health insurance and can help supplement medical costs if you get sick or injured before or during your vacation. Therefore, it is important to purchase a travel insurance policy that provides emergency healthcare coverage while in Mexico.

Will My Travel Insurance Policy Cover Me If I get the Coronavirus on my Trip to Mexico?

At this point in time, many insurance companies do not have a straightforward answer to this question. A good rule of thumb is, “If the insurer doesn’t prominently advertise that they cover the virus, that likely means they won’t” (Nathan Hake, a highly featured digital nomad).

No matter what your plans you have to visit Mexico, it is important to get a Mexico travel insurance policy to protect yourself against many unforeseen events. For more information, please contact Inszone Insurance for all your Mexico travel insurance needs!
