About my travel protection plans
SafeTrip travel protection includes three plan options. International Travel Medical Plus is an all-around protection package including health care and cancellation. International Travel Medical provides health care coverage including evacuation, while our U.S.-only Travel Protection plan gives you coverage if your trip is interrupted, delayed or cancelled.
Our International Travel Medical plan allows you access to the UnitedHealthcare Global network of providers up to a certain dollar amount.
Choose the International Travel Medical Plus coverage, and the dollar amount covered increases, as well as access to additional travel protection benefits. You have a choice between 3 plan levels for both of our products that include medical expense coverage.
The International Travel Medical Plus plan focuses on coverages in the event your trip is cancelled or interrupted, but still includes medical expense limits ranging from $50,000 to $150,000.
Our International Travel Medical plan is geared towards the traveler wanting more robust medical coverage for unexpected accidents or sickness and starts at a minimum medical expense limit of $100,000 and allows for a maximum of $1,000,000.
For either product, by selecting the highest level of coverage you can minimize the risk of any out-of-pocket or up-front expenses, even in the case of a serious medical incident.:

This website contains highlights of the plans, which include travel insurance coverages underwritten by Centurion Casualty Company (for U.S. residents) or H&W Indemnity SPC for and on behalf of Global Solutions SP (for non-U.S. residents). This coverage is provided under the UnitedHealthcare Global trade name.
The plans also contain non-insurance Travel Assistance Services provided by UnitedHealth Group, Inc. or its applicable affiliates under the UnitedHealthcare Global trade name. Coverages may vary and not all coverage is available in all jurisdictions. Insurance coverages are subject to the terms, limitations and exclusions in the plan, including an exclusion for pre-existing conditions. In most states, your travel retailer is not a licensed insurance producer/agent, and is not qualified or authorized to answer technical questions about the terms, benefits, exclusions, and conditions of the insurance offered or to evaluate the adequacy of your existing insurance coverage. Your travel retailer may be compensated for the purchase of a plan and may provide general information about the plans offered, including a description of the coverage and price. The purchase of travel insurance is not required in order to purchase any other product or service from your travel retailer. CA DOI toll free number: 800-927-4357.

About medical evacuation
Evacuations are complex and typically involve:
- Evaluation of the transport requirements (such as oxygen requirements, healthcare specialists, special equipment, altitude specifications, etc.)
- Discharge administration
- Admission into a new facility
- Identifying qualified aeromedical escorts and air ambulances
- Coordinating ground transportation on both ends of the evacuation
- Immigration and flight clearances
- Assistance with family travel arrangements
This is the perfect example of why SafeTrip is so essential: in case of inadequate local health care, our Emergency Response Center will coordinate proper medical transfer to the nearest UnitedHealthcare Global-vetted facility, where we will continue to monitor your case until you are returned home or have received final treatment.
UnitedHealthcare Global is not responsible for the availability, timing, quality, results of, or failure to provide any of the services that are beyond our reasonable control. This would include things such as, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of any government or governmental agency (including any port, transportation or local authority), war or other hostility, civil disorder, where the of such care or service is prohibited by U.S. law, local laws, or regulatory agencies, etc. Specific to COVID, these scenarios may come into play in situations where governments issue entry bans or restrictions, or where there is an inability to transport COVID positive patients.
Yes. COVID-19 is treated the same as any other sickness for purposes of all coverages that are triggered by a sickness or that can reimburse losses resulting from a sickness – including deaths caused by sickness. Depending on the Plan Design, this can include – but is not necessarily limited to – the following (including the sub-benefits of many of these):
- Accident and Sickness
- Medical Expense
- Emergency Medical Evacuation/ Medical Repatriation/ Return of Remains.
Coverage would apply in the event of issued alerts/warnings or country-specific bans or quarantine requirements related to a named epidemic or pandemic providing your policy was in effect prior to the issuance of those alerts/warnings, entry bands or quarantine requirements. Refer to your full policy document for specific details related to this coverage and/or exclusions.
Coverage for quarantine would apply if you have departed on your trip and then learn of an alert/warning, country-specific entry ban or quarantine requirements after you have departed on your trip and is included in the trip interruption benefit of your policy providing your policy includes that benefit. Refer to your full policy document for specific details related to this coverage and/or exclusions.
No, you don't need to register to submit a claim or get your Explanation of Benefits here.
You can claim directly via "Report a claim" on the top navigation and CBP Connect will send you an email once your claim has been processed. You will then receive a one-time password on request to access your Explanation of Benefits.
You will need to submit a claim for each issue separately.
This means that if you need to claim for Medical Expenses and Baggage Loss, two separate claims will have to be submitted. However, your policy ID will help the claims team to connect both claims together and will process them simultaneously so you don't have to wait twice to get reimbursed.
Your Policy ID and Member Number can both be found on either your ID card or in the body of your fulfilment email.
You will need your policy ID or Member Number to submit claims and viewing Explanation of Benefits.
Once you are in the "Report a Claim" process, CBP Connect will ask you some questions to understand what type of claim you are looking for and to make the process as easy as possible. For instance, one of the questions asked could be "Did you take any part of your covered trip?". If you are answering with "No", this would indicate that you would require a trip cancellation or trip itinerary change form. On the next page, you can then choose of those two options which will be followed by another question to help you limit the options.
You will still have the option to choose from all the claims forms later in the process. The question wizard is just there to make it easier for you to choose.
In case, you have missed some documents or were just waiting on another document for a claim, you can always follow up on your claim by sending the additional information to [email protected]. The team will add the documents to your current claims.
