Traveling Abroad: How Your Trip Can Unexpectedly Put You in the Poorhouse

Traveling or living abroad can be an exciting and life-changing experience. But every year, hundreds of travelers and students far from home require emergency medical treatment, hospitalization, and even medical evacuation, and find their insurance provides little or no coverage once they’ve left their home country.

Seeking medical treatment in an unfamiliar place can be stressful, and the high cost can put a severe financial strain on you and your family.
