Southward Bound: The Importance of Comprehensive Travel Insurance

Posted on September 14th, 2023 by Medipac

As the season changes, our annual trip to a warmer climate is on the horizon. Yet, this year, our departure is delightfully delayed by the anticipated arrival of a new grandchild in October and the festive spirit of our office Christmas party in December. These events, far from inconveniences, are joyful markers in the lead-up to our journey south.

Amidst the excitement, a critical task looms on our pre-departure checklist: securing robust travel medical insurance. The reality of aging brings with it the inevitability of rising insurance premiums, but the peace of mind it affords is invaluable. This year, the task is compounded by the need to ensure Pat’s mother, a vibrant 98-year-old with a recent hospital visit, is also adequately covered. This scenario highlights the crucial need for travel insurance plans that provide comprehensive coverage, including coverage for pre-existing conditions, like Medipac’s Underwritten Plan.

The Importance of Comprehensive Coverage
