  • Medical Insurance Around the World with WorldMed

    Filed Under: Blogging

When packing your bags for the round-the-world trip, remember to bring along international travel insurance. While several plans exist in the market , research the plans and choose one that works for you. The WorldMed travel insurance plan is one such high-value travel insurance plan.

The plan offers a choice of two maximum benefit levels: $500,000 and $1 million. These plans include medical coverage and accidental death and dismemberment benefits. The WorldMed Lite plan lets you choose either accident benefits or medical benefits.

The plan can be renewed for up to three years, and the plan covers 80% of the medical costs up to $5,000 and 100% thereafter. As with most travel insurance plans, the WorldMed plan covers sudden medical problems and injuries. There is also coverage for emergency medical evacuation, and if he cas warrants it, the travel of a close family member to be with the plan holder.

As far as travel benefits go, the plan covers lost baggage and trip interruption. Lost baggage cover is $250, and trip interruption, which includes the cost of a one-way ticket home in case of a catastrophe or tragedy back home, covers up to $5,000. For those wishing to participate in adventurous sports, the plan also offers an additional rider.

Travel tip: When purchasing travel insurance, consider the trade-off between the maximum benefits and the premium payable. If you would like a $100,000 maximum benefit plan, think about what additional value an $125,000 plan could possibly add.
