International Major Medical

Traveling out of the country?  RealCare has you covered!  U.S. residents traveling abroad may be surprised to discover that traditional health insurance sometimes offers less than standard coverage when traveling abroad. In fact, most policies only cover emergency care, leaving policyholders with no coverage for potentially expensive treatment of medical problems.

Take The Case Of…
Mr. K. was snowboarding in the French Alps when he fractured his leg in the terrain park. Since this was not a life threatening condition his primary USA coverage did not cover the bill. Fortunately for Mr. K. he had an International Major Medical policy that covered the $15,000 medical bills.

Even the U.S. State Department advises international travelers to purchase short term medical insurance while outside the U.S.

RealCare offers you international major medical through Petersen International Underwriters, the leader in international major medical coverage.

The USAway Major Medical Plan is ideal for U.S. residents traveling out of the country.

And Petersen’s International Major Medical Plan can be used for foreign nationals visiting, living or working in the U.S., or U.S. citizens returning to the U.S.  Both policies are underwritten by Lloyd’s of London.
