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.:

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.
Regardless of the terms of the Plan, United States Fire Insurance Company has made the administrative decision to allow for coverage to be extended for the entire duration of a COVID-19 related quarantine, and coverage will be extended for five additional days following the end of the quarantine provided you have not arrived back in your return destination city.
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 immediately 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
We are here for you with non-insurance travel assistance services, even if you’re facing a non-medical challenge. You can call our Emergency Response Center to assist with lost or stolen passports, legal referrals, translation services, emergency transfer of funds and a host of other non-medical problems.
UnitedHealthcare Global also provides travel and medical assistance through our 24/7 Emergency Response Center. Contact us via the phone +1.410.453.6330 (International), +1.800.527.0218 (toll free) or email us at [email protected]
