This website primarily offers medical insurance for expatriates. IMG, the administration company we work with, also offers the Patriot travel insurance policies which is why we created this page. Just so there is no confusion about what kind of policy you should buy, please read the explanation below about the difference between medical and travel insurance…
What is the difference between Travel and Medical Insurance?
Travel insurance is usually for short periods but can be for up to 3 years and does not cover urgent or elective medical problems. It covers only accidents and emergencies. Travel insurance companies expect you to end your trip and return home for elective or urgent treatment, and some policies require return home before your planned return date once diagnosed. For example, if you were diagnosed with cancer while on a travel policy, there might be an urgent requirement to commence treatment, but it is not life or death to get on an airplane and return home. Travel insurance is also not renewable. If you do have a serious medical problem, your coverage will end at expiry or when you return home. ProtExPlan medical insurance covers urgent and elective medical problems like cancer, and is guaranteed renewable. If you have expatriate medical insurance, you don’t need travel insurance unless you are traveling outside your area of cover. The underlying assumption with travel cover is that you have proper medical insurance at home or in your country of residence to return to.
Trip Cancellation Insurance: The policies below cover trip cancellation, missed departure and provide the kind of benefits that medical insurance policies don’t have like lost baggage etc. If you have expatriate medical insurance, you don’t need the medical cover that travel insurance polices have, but you may wish to have the kind of non-medical travel insurance benefits that travel insurance polices often come with. So please have a look at the Patriot TRIP policies below if you’d like to have these benefits.
