Travel Insurance Claims
Travel Insurance Tips
A dangerous practice is to refuse treatment or not change a drug despite your doctor’s recommendation, because you think it may affect the cost of your travel insurance.
This does not work. If a doctor recommends a change in drugs, and you do not accept that change, the insurance company will treat this as an unstable pre-existing condition. A claim will not be paid for that condition. Please, just do what your doctor recommends and do not sacrifice your health for insurance reasons. Medipac can often provide full coverage if you contact us and explain your situation.
