International Insurance

HealthCare Volunteer is pleased to partner with World Wide Risk Management in providing participants from all countries with travel medical insurance administered by industry leader International Medical Group. These plans are offered as a supplement to private medical insurance, which provides little to no coverage outside the country in which it is issued. Travel medical insurance provides coverage for the cost of care 24 hours a day, seven days a week for accidents and sudden illnesses while overseas, including political and emergency medical evacuations. Coverage is also available for travel itinerary protection. It is strongly suggested that you obtain this coverage prior to embarking on your overseas adventure â€" in the event of unforeseen medical circumstances, expenses can accrue at a surprisingly fast rate and you want to make sure you are protected.

We recommend that you maintain your domestic insurance while you are abroad, so that you have medical insurance during trips back to your home country and upon completion of your work overseas.

Coverage may be reviewed, quoted and purchased here. Specific questions concerning the details of the coverage can be sent directly to info@worldwiderisk.com. Please note that you will need to purchase insurance at least 24 hours in advance of your departure â€" you can ensure that you receive important policy documents (such as your insurance identification card) immediately by requesting “online fulfillment” when completing the application through the link above. We recommend leaving a copy of these documents in your email inbox so that they may be retrieved anywhere in the world.

Please bear in mind that you should obtain coverage which lasts for the entire duration of your trip. In the event of a claim, it is expected that you will have purchased the insurance prior to the medical situation â€" the cost of obtaining coverage is small compared to the global peace of mind you will have while you are traveling! Note that if you intend to engage in any extreme sports such as SCUBA, skiing, or mountain climbing, you will need to make sure you apply for the appropriate coverages. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
