International Medical Care Can Become a Major Expense to Your Family
Traveling or living abroad can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. However, every year many people visiting foreign countries require emergency medical treatment, hospitalization, or medical evacuation to their home countries.
A major illness or injury could be a high cost that you may not be prepared for. In 2012, the average cost for a hospital stay was over $4,000 per day, and a major illness or injury could cost you much more. Medical evacuation to your home country is also costly. For example, an air ambulance from North America can cost upwards of $20,000 for one way travel alone.
