Medical Travel Coverage

SPECIALISED MEDICAL TRAVEL BENEFITS

While the risks of medical complications from our highly qualified providers are low,  all surgical procedures carry certain risks and complications can and do occur.  We are proud to partner with Custom Assurance Placements Ltd., who administer the Global Protective Solutions (GPS) program.  GPS is the worldwide leader in providing risk mitigation solutions and protection benefits specifically for international medical travelers / tourists.

The Global Protective Solutions programs have been protecting international medical and dental travelers and their travel companions since 2008.  International medical travel requires unique and specialized protection, which standard travel insurance policies usually exclude or do not address.  Participation is available on a worldwide basis. 

The primary area of benefits cover two broad areas:

 

BENEFITS RELATED TO YOUR PROCEDURE / TREATMENT BENEFITS RELATED TO TRAVEL
Additional Medical / Surgical Treatment as a result of a Complication Travel Cancellation, Delay and Loss of Baggage
Additional Expenses for Travel, Meals & Accommodations as a result of a Complication Emergency Medical Coverage related to Travel Activities

Offering the needed protection where

  • Standard Travel Insurance Usually Excludes Medical Tavelers & Their Companions
  • Your Private or National Health Insurance Usually Does Not Provide Benefits Abroad
  • Health Insurance Will Not Cover Complications of Elective Surgery When You Return Home
  • Employer Health or Travel Cover Usually Excludes Elective Medical Procedures

All medical travel and procedures carry a certain amount of risk, known and unknown. Complications and accidents can and do occur.  Your enrollment to a Global Protective Solutions program, helps lessen the significant financial risks and burden that may arise, from those sustained from elective treatment or travel related activities. 

Other programs such as  “fly back cover” or “surgical warranty / guarantee” provide limited protection only while you are in the visiting country. They all require that you return to the foreign country to take advantage of any benefits in the event of a medical complication (you may not be medically fit to travel). It is important to realize that these plans will not provide any assistance for you at home or respond in an urgent or emergency situation. These programs are not insurance, or backed by an insurance company, and your case must first undergo review by the medical staff and pass a long list of exclusions.

Ease your mind in knowing that you can receive outstanding medical care at reasonable prices and enjoy the added protection of specialised coverage afforded by the Global Protective Solutions program.
