Travel Medical Insurance
This is the travel medical insurance you are familiar with anytime you travel outside of the country where you live. It covers most medical emergencies and usually includes getting you and your family home should it be necessary. Please keep in mind that if you have a new medical condition diagnosed just prior to travel that your may not qualify for coverage. Also, if you take prescription medications, check with your policy and your family physician regarding restrictions on the addition of new medications and/or changes to your existing prescription prior to travel. This insurance does not cover any aspect of the medical procedure or treatment you are travelling for. That is what Medical Complication Insurance is for.
Medical Complication Insurance
This is the insurance that covers you for complications that may arise from the procedure you are travelling for. It is a highly specialised travel insurance created due to the increasing demand for coverage for medical tourists. Please check with the policy to ensure your procedure is covered before signing on. This does not cover complications due to physician malpractice.
Malpractice insurance focuses specifically on coverage for injury or complications that arise from physician malpractice. It does not cover complications that do not relate to physician negligence or substandard practices. This insurance option is usually packaged separately from Complication insurance by the insurance companies.
Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
This could be included with your travel insurance so check with your agent. It covers death or loss of limb not associated with the medical procedure you are travelling for.
Cancellation and Baggage Insurance
Just as it says, this is extra insurance you can purchase which will cover the need to cancel your trip or loss of baggage. They can be purchased together or separately. Again, check with your credit card company as many do offer this with their membership if you purchase your trip with the credit card.
