All medical travel and procedures carry a certain amount of risk, known and unknown. Complications and accidents can and do occur. Your enrollment to a Global Protective Solutions program, helps lessen the significant financial risks and burden that may arise, from those sustained from elective treatment or travel related activities.
Other programs such as “fly back cover” or “surgical warranty / guarantee” provide limited protection only while you are in the visited country. They all require that you return to the foreign country to take advantage of any benefits in the event of a medical complication (you may not be medically fit to travel). It is important to realize that these plans will not provide any assistance for you at home or respond in an urgent or emergency situation. These programs are not insurance, or backed by an insurance company, and your case must first undergo review by the medical staff and pass a long list of exclusions.
Ease your mind in knowing that you can receive outstanding medical care at reasonable prices and enjoy the added protection of specialized coverage afforded by the Global Protective Solutions program.
