International Health & Accident
Having been involved primarily in the International Insurance industry since 1989,
we have witnessed first hand the delusions that Americans have when traveling abroad
in respect to their lack of knowledge regarding their various insurance coverage's.
Whether it is Mexico, or any other country, we seem to feel that our insurance follows
us throughout our international travels. In some cases they do, in many instances
they do not. Failure in becoming knowledgeable of your own Health Insurance coverage's
for example, could lead you into a very expensive, and easily avoidable mistake.
The following excerpt was taken directly, verbatim from the U.S. Dept of State,
Bureau of Consular Affairs Information Sheet on MEXICO dated February 3, 2004. This
was taken from the Medical Insurance heading of the Info Sheet.
When making a decision regarding health insurance, Americans should consider that
many foreign doctors and hospitals require payment in cash prior to providing service
and that medical air evacuation to the U.S. may cost well in excess of $50,000.
The Dept of State strongly urges Americans to consult with their medical insurance
company prior to traveling abroad to confirm whether their policies applies over
seas and if it will cover emergency expenses such as medical evacuation. U.S. medical
insurance plans seldom cover health care costs outside of the U.S. unless supplemental
coverage is purchased. Further, U.S. Medicare and Medicaid programs do not provide
payment for Medical services outside the U.S.
We represent only A rated companies both short term (as little as 15 days) or long
term (Annual Renewable Health & Accident Insurance plans). If you live, work
or reside outside of the U.S. for up to 6 months a year, you may also qualify under
the Annual Renewable plan for coverage under the same plan for both the U.S. and
Canada. That is truly ALL WORLD coverage and may be the only plan you need!
This is not a hard sell and worthy of your interest. You will find out more about

find that these plans are not just affordable, but worth every penny.
