Travel Medical Insurance – Atlas International Policy

Todays Date: December 15, 2018

Falling sick while traveling to another country is a real concern for many travelers. To allay those fears, Atlas Travel Health Insurance offers short-term plans that are especially beneficial for those on holidays, business trips, and student exchange or similar programs.

With the Atlas international travel insurance plan, the plan holder receives medical benefits for inpatient and outpatient treatment. The plan includes ambulance charges and hospital coverage up to $100 per night at the hospital, and physical therapy. Coverage includes emergency dental treatment, and the cost of evacuation for emergency medical treatment. The hazardous sports coverage covers the cost of medical treatment if the insured gets injured when performing adventurous sports such as mountaineering.

Seniors often struggle with the terms of travel insurance because it excludes diseases previously detected. With the Atlas international travel insurance plan, those under 70 can still get such conditions covered in case of their acute recurrence. Also, if hospitalization results in an unattended child under 18, the plan covers the minor’s return home.

In keeping with the times, the plan also offers coverage for injuries resulting from acts of terrorism and natural disasters, and costs related to political evacuation. If an international trip is interrupted due to a catastrophic event that damages the home of the insured, the Atlas International insurance plan will cover his/her trip back home. In the unfortunate event of the death of the insured, the plan covers the cost of sending the remains home.

The plan not just covers travel, but also temporary trips home during the plan period, for up to a maximum of 15 days in 3 months. The Atlas insurance plan eases the transition on return by offering medical coverage for 30 days in the home country.

The travel health insurance plan also offers non-medical benefits such as lost baggage tracking and help with finding doctors and lawyers in case of need. The plan covers treatment (after the deductible) by U.S. doctors and hospitals that are part of the PPO network.

Applicants to the Atlas international travel insurance plan must be at least 14 days old. Plans can be for a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of 12 months, with options for extension. An Web-based client zone helps plan holders work with and perform tasks associated with the plan. Round-the-clock, round-the-world customer service is available through toll-free phone numbers.

Benefits of the Atlas international travel insurance plan range from $50,000 to 1,000,000. The premium varies with the age of the insured, maximum medical coverage and deductible. The addition of the sports rider will increase the premium.
