Going on Holiday?

Summer months typically mark a busy time for the international travel industry.  Family vacations, business trips, study-abroad programs, high school/college senior trips, honeymoons and humanitarian and religious missions are but a few of the many reasons Americans are traveling overseas this summer.  Unbeknownst to most travelers, their trusted domestic medical policies and governmental healthcare programs won’t sufficiently cover them during foreign travel.  Once they cross that border, many of the benefits they think they can count on cease to exist or are at the very least greatly diminished.

Please inform and educate your friends, family and clients about the unfortunate gaps in their healthcare when they venture outside the country.  No matter age, gender, socioeconomic status or citizenship, U.S. residents traveling abroad need supplemental international major medical insurance.

Petersen International offers a comprehensive international medical product that has been the go-to on the market for decades.  The USAway International Major Medical Plan is one of the finest sources of medical protection one can have while traveling, residing or working outside the U.S.  Its benefit structure easily fills the gaps found in traditional health plans, and further boasts important benefits such as emergency evacuation, repatriation and trip interruption that come standard with every policy.

The USAway Plan has remained quite affordable and flexible, accommodating short and long-term international travel itineraries.  Policies can be purchased through agency web portals that we create specifically for each insurance producer or agency, allowing your clientele to purchase the coverage easily online under the guise of your company’s branding.  Your clients will receive their policies and ID cards electronically, moments after purchasing the appropriate plan.

Whether the client is a U.S. resident taking a Caribbean cruise, visiting relatives in Mexico or attending a business conference in Singapore, travel insurance is a necessary component to the ensuring of medical and financial protection when someone you know and care about travels overseas.

In addition to optional hazardous sports and activities coverage, Petersen’s online enrollment portal also provides clients the choice of selecting a COVID-19 rider, which covers the medically necessary treatment of COVID-19 during international travel.

To learn more about travel medical insurance and for a complete outline of benefits, including the COVID-19 rider, call Petersen International at (800) 345-8816.
