With many people in the middle of planning their summer vacation, it is important to review how your health insurance functions outside of the United States. With all individual and family health insurance plans, you are only covered outside of California in case of a true medical emergency. Group health insurance plans may have international provider networks to cover you for both routine and emergency care depending on the insurance plan. Medicare plans do not cover you outside of the US whatsoever.

Travel insurance companies have international networks and representatives that can speak the local language to translate and process foreign medical bills. You can rest assured that any possible medical bills that occur will be processed seamlessly with a solid travel insurance plan.

  4. Lost luggage coverage
