Missionary travel insurance is indispensable when you are away from home. A medical emergency could quickly turn into a nightmare unless immediate help is at hand. As Medicare and Medicaid will not cover a missionary on an international trip, missionary travel health insurance is recommended. Travel insurance for missionaries provides coverage wherever your ministry takes you.
Missionary Travel Medical Insurance – Short Term
There are two broad types of missionary travel health insurance plans. If you will be travelling for anywhere from 5 days to 24 months away from home country, short term missionary travel insurance could be suitable for you. Medication, physician visits, hospital stays and surgeries related to new injuries and illnesses will be covered. The policy can become effective as early as the next day when you purchase it online. Coverage can be obtained without providing medical history.
Missionary Travel Health Insurance – Long Term
If your trip will keep you outside your country of citizenship for a year or more, you could consider long term missionary travel medical insurance. You will be covered in your home country in addition to coverage abroad. The application goes through medical underwriting and details of recent wellness visits may be needed. In addition to coverage for injuries and illness, coverage for wellness and maternity may be available after a waiting period.
