Insurance for offshore medical treatment

Medical Insurance for Travelers

Travel medical insurance is for travelers who are leaving their home country. It provides coverage for medical emergencies and evacuations. Depending on the company selling it, it is sometimes called International Medical Insurance, International Travel Insurance, or Worldwide Medical Insurance.

The difference between Travel Medical Insurance and general Travel Insurance is that the plans here are focused on emergency medical/evacuation vs. trip cancellation coverage. You can purchase trip cancellation insurance while booking travel.
