Why Choose ExchangeGuard?

Whatever your reason, international travel should be a pleasant experience. Complications and emergencies such as illness, injury, and natural disasters are a fact of life. While we hope none of these incidents happen, we’re here to help if they do.

ExchangeGuard helps you manage unexpected medical costs while traveling abroad with benefits including inpatient and outpatient medical expenses, $500,000 of coverage for emergency medical evacuation, coverage for lost checked baggage, and many other important benefits.

Do I need travel medical insurance?

Many times the primary medical insurance in your home country will not cover you while traveling abroad and often will not provide important services, perhaps essential ones, in the event of an illness or injury. ExchangeGuard includes these essentials such as translation assistance during treatment, doctor and hospital referrals, and assistance replacing lost prescriptions.

What's Covered by ExchangeGuard?

International Coverage

Emergency Medical Evacuation and Emergency Reunion

Would you know what to do if you found yourself in a life-threatening situation far from home? ExchangeGuard is experienced in arranging emergency medical evacuations. ExchangeGuard will cover eligible expenses necessary to transport you from an initial treating facility to the nearest hospital qualified to treat your life-threatening condition. We also understand the importance of family support in these difficult situations. ExchangeGuard will also cover the transportation, lodging, and meal costs for a relative to join you after a covered emergency medical evacuation, up to the lifetime limit.

Repatriation of Remains

What would your family do if disaster strikes while you are away from home? The death of a loved one is never easy, no matter the circumstances. In the unfortunate event of your death while traveling abroad, ExchangeGuard will arrange for and cover the costs associated with the repatriation of your remains.

Return of Minor Children

If, during the coverage period and after your arrival, the United States government issues a travel warning for your destination country, ExchangeGuard will coordinate your alternate departure arrangements from that country and cover eligible associated costs.

Terrorism

In these turbulent times, the risk of a terrorist attack is a reality. If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the country or region you're visiting is NOT under a level 3 or level 4 travel advisory, ExchangeGuard offers coverage for eligible medical expenses resulting from those acts. Coverage excludes countries or regions for which the U.S. Department of State has issued a level 3 ("reconsider travel") or level 4 ("do not travel") advisory.

Political Evacuation

If, during the coverage period and after your arrival, the United States government issues a level 3 or level 4 travel advisory for your destination country, ExchangeGuard will coordinate your alternate departure arrangements from that country and cover eligible associated costs.

This insurance is not subject to, and does not provide certain insurance benefits required by the United States' Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("PPACA"). PPACA requires certain US citizens or US residents to obtain PPACA compliant health insurance, or "minimum essential coverage." PPACA also requires certain employers to offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. Tax penalties may be imposed on U.S. residents or citizens who do not maintain minimum essential coverage, and on certain employers who do not offer PPACA compliant insurance coverage to their employees. In some cases, certain individuals may be deemed to have minimum essential coverage under PPACA even if their insurance coverage does not provide all of the benefits required by PPACA. You should consult your attorney or tax professional to determine whether this policy meets any obligations you may have under PPACA.
