Duration of health insurance with travel assistance

If you're planning a trip abroad, there are several things you should take into account

Depending on the duration of the trip and the destination, your main concern might be what clothes to pack or what sites and monuments to visit.

We also have to consider a circumstance that could ruin the best of plans: the possibility of suffering an accident outside of our borders.

Health insurance with travel assistance

It's important to take out a medical insurance policy to cover any accident you may have while abroad so you can focus on what really matters in every trip, living the experience without any surprises.

If you already have health insurance, the first thing you should do is find out what cover is included in the policy for trips abroad.

The coverage is probably minimal, allowing the insured to extend it by adding different types of coverage, which will increase the premium.

Duration of travel assistance in the health insurance

One of the sections you must pay close attention to is the duration of the coverage. In most cases, but perhaps not yours, coverage lasts for three months. This is in general, as many other insurance policies only cover the first 30 days of a trip or less.

In principle, this should not be a concern because, as I have mentioned before, all these types of coverage can be amended in your health insurance policy if you pay a higher premium.

The best advice in these cases is to go to the source, which in this case is your health insurance policy, to obtain more extensive and accurate information.
