Travel Insurance Tips
Before you purchase a travel insurance plan, ask about the assistance services – most assistance companies are disinterested third parties that route medical emergency calls to call-center clerks, rather than to real doctors and nurses.
At Medipac Assist, medical professionals will answer your calls – much more expensive, of course, but we take our responsibilities seriously! Minutes can save lives.
I have just purchased a short term policy using the online application. I was impressed with the whole procedure. This was my first purchase from Medipac. Thanks

Remember, if your health changes at any time between the date of your application and your Effective Date of Insurance, you must contact Medipac to determine whether you are still eligible for coverage and, if eligible, at what rate.
If you are not certain of the answers to any of the medical questions on the application, we strongly suggest that you consult your doctor.
