Is It Important To Have Medical Insurance?

Perhaps the better question is whether you are prepared to travel without it.

While international travel is often interesting, fun and exciting, it is important not to ignore the real risks we face, even though we do not like to think about them happening. Imagine it is 3 a.m. back home and you are severely injured in a fall, will anyone pick up the phone at your local insurance company? If they do answer, can they or will they have the ability to assist you with your emergency?

Many health insurance plans have restrictions for time spent out of home country or geographic areas that lack coverage. Be confident when you arrive in another country that you will enjoy the security of the finest travel medical insurance protection available in the market today. The administrator provides the essential coverage and service to respond quickly, compassionately and professionally to the emergency mentioned above and hundreds of other travel emergencies.
Coverage Anywhere. Value Everywhere.

Is Beacon International a Good Value?

Beacon International offers the most comprehensive schedule of benefits available in today's travel medical insurance market and all at an affordable price. We believe the real value of an insurance plan exists in the service attached to the plan and the ability to respond in a time of need. We take tremendous pride in professionally serving our clients, with staff members who enjoy helping people, no matter where they are in the world and at any time of the day or night.

Sudden Onset of Pre-existing

Beacon International offers coverage for a prior health condition, which suddenly and unexpectedly asserts itself during your travel, but has not received ongoing treatment, which would include medication or therapy of any kind for the past 730 days. Policies purchased with Maximum Limits of $550,000, $1,100,000 offer coverage for Eligible Expenses up to $150,000. Policies purchased for all other Maximum Limits offer up to $50,000 and up to $25,000 when related to an Emergency Medical Evacuation. The Sudden Onset of Preexisting benefit is only available to Participating Members under the age of 70. With this powerful benefit, you will enjoy the peace of mind knowing you have coverage, even when your health history has a few blemishes.

Political Evacuation

If you spend any time reviewing the headlines, you know the potential for a crisis to appear seemingly out of nowhere is real and present. Beacon International offers up to $100,000 in coverage in the event the US Department of State issues a travel warning on or after your effective date, contact the administrator within 5 days for assistance in coordinating travel to an alternate destination.

Third Party Liability

If you are traveling away from your home country and outside of the US, Beacon International now offers up to $500 in coverage for Third Party Liability. So, be careful, but if you did knock over that lamp in the hotel lobby, you can feel better knowing that you have protection that goes where you go.

Emergency Medical Evacuation

It is likely that the most significant financial and personal risk you face abroad is the need for an emergency medical evacuation. In the case of a life threatening injury or illness, Beacon International provides coverage to transport you to the nearest facility, which can properly care for you. We know it is important not to feel alone in a time of crisis, which is why Beacon International also provides coverage for the transportation of an immediate family member or friend to your bedside in the event of an Emergency Medical Evacuation.

Free Home Country Coverage - End of trip

A long time away from home requires a little time to get acclimated to life back home. That is why Beacon International provides you with 15 days of free coverage with a 180 day Policy purchase or 30 days of free coverage with a 364 day Policy purchase.

Highest Maximum Limits Available

If getting the most for your premium dollar matters to you then the clear choice is Beacon International.


The daily news offers a regular reminder of the challenging environment in which we live. Terrorism, by its very nature is meant to take advantage of the unaware and unprepared. While we cannot stop these events from occurring, Beacon International is prepared to help with covering the expenses for medical care in case you are injured in such an attack.

Optional Extreme Sports Rider

If your lifestyle often takes you on the path less traveled, the administrator has an Optional Rider designed just for you. Participation in recreational/resort sports such as beach volleyball or snorkeling are included Free as a part of an Exclusive benefit offered in Beacon International. That is where the Optional Extreme Sports Rider takes over. Extreme recreational activities from four different elements include: Earth, Water, Wind and Snow. The Optional Extreme Sports Rider provides up to $50,000 of coverage for eligible activities. The Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefit does not apply when you are engaged in sports and/or hazardous activities.

Trip Delay

As we all know, travel can be frustrating at times and trip delays are often a big part of that frustration. In the event your travel is significantly delayed, Beacon International provides up to a $100 per day to help defray unexpected expenses resulting from such delays.

Quick Trip Home Coverage

Long trips may require that you return home for a brief time to manage your affairs. Perhaps it is important to be home for the holidays; if so, Beacon International has you covered. If you purchase at least 90 days of coverage, Beacon International provides coverage in your home country for up to 14 days with the Quick Trip Home benefit, after which you would then complete your international travel.

Note: All benefits discussed here are as indicated in Beacon International Schedule of Benefits.
