To have peace of mind when traveling abroad, keep in mind the benefits of travel medical insurance. Should a medical emergency occur, your attention is placed on the health of the traveler, not on the methods and responsibility of payment. Consider a plan with pre-existing conditions if the family member is taking medication or has diabetes. Unique to the visitor medical insurance industry, the Premier Plan from India Network Health Insurance offers pre existing condition coverage for all age groups, covers heart attacks and does not have a look back period.
Keep in mind the basics of traveling abroad. Get a check-up before you depart, bring appropriate medications to cover the duration of your stay, eat healthy and give yourself a few days for your body to adjust to the new time zone before scheduling too much activity.
