Huff Post Travel: Do You Have the Medical Evacuation Coverage You Think You Have?

A recent trip to the Amazon had me climbing a tree to escape wild boars. I was lucky the harrowing experience resulted in no injuries. There was the strong possibility that I could have been severely harmed if not killed. Sitting in the tree, I began to wonder about my medical evacuation coverage? This was clearly not the time nor could I purchase it from a tree even if I could get a signal.

Finding the plan that fits your needs and lifestyle, understanding the coverage and the defined terms and who is making the decisions is critical. It is a small investment in one’s health and security. These are the questions I should have asked prior to my trip.
