Get the help you need, wherever you are
Why buy travel medical insurance? Because your well-being matters, far beyond the itinerary ahead. If you experience a medical emergency abroad, your current insurance may not cover your medical expenses. Plus you may not know how to find a doctor, which local hospital is right for your needs, or which specialists in the area are the best choices. For assistance, our 24/7 Emergency Response Center is just a call away.
More about our smart medical plan
By investing in the International Travel Medical plan, you are ensuring that you have help in unexpected health care situations.
Accident & sickness
One of the best ways to enjoy every moment of a trip: Having a backup plan in case things go awry. You’ll be able to relax, knowing help is on hand in case of an unfortunate illness or injury.
Being in an unfamiliar city or country adds complexity and stress in a medical crisis situation. Our specialists are available 24/7 and will coordinate emergency transportation to quality care, ASAP.
If you are injured or fall ill while away from home, you may need more than medical care — such as the support of a family member. Our coverage includes travel expenses to bring a loved one to your side.
It can happen: A full-on dental emergency, hundreds of miles from home. Our specialists have a database of vetted dentists all over the world so you can get help, right where you are.
Baggage delay or loss
If you’ve ever lost luggage, you know what a hassle it is to replace everyday essentials. Here’s one less thing to worry about: Our coverage includes the cost of picking up necessities to get your trip back on track for traveling in comfort.

Make sure your medical bills are covered
Your health care bills for a medical condition or accident will be paid for up to your selected coverage amount. In some countries, medical care providers require a Guarantee of Payment or a wire transfer; our coverage addresses these sort of needs so you get care right away.
Quality care, without delay
Specialists are available 24/7 through our Emergency Response Center, and will identify the best care for your needs as well as the best place for you to receive it. If the right care isn’t nearby, medical evacuation can cover medical transportation costs including ground or air ambulance to a credentialed hospital or center of medical excellence.
Bringing you home safely
If you get sick, or are injured while on your trip in a way that prevents you from continuing your travel as planned, our medical repatriation coverage arranges and pays for the appropriate transportation for your situation.
Go big without worry
If you’re an adventurer, your vacation might include a little extra thrills in the mix. Whether you have extra-active plans or are headed into rugged terrain, our add-on Extreme Sports coverage includes free diving, parachuting and more.

It is important that UnitedHealthcare Global is notified as soon as possible. Our Emergency Response Center professionals will monitor your care and work through the complex details of foreign hospitalizations on your behalf. Our staff will speak with your treating doctor to assess your condition, your treatment plans, and whether or not a medical evacuation is necessary. At your request, we will update your family, employer and personal physician as appropriate, as well as coordinate all travel medical insurance verifications and admission details, leaving you to focus on getting better.
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
