If you plan on traveling outside of the USA, your existing health insurance plan will NOT give you any protection at all.
You need to get a travel insurance plan that will give you coverage while you are outside of the United States. These travel plans are very inexpensive and are worth their weight in gold if you become sick or injured while in a foreign country.
All plans have coverage that includes emergency medical evacuation and repatriation, emergency medical reunion, return of children, return of mortal remains, and of course hospital and doctor charges for illnesses and injuries. Coverage is available for people of all ages including over the age of 65.
You can purchase a plan for a specific number of days. For example, if you are going to be traveling for 21 days, you can get a plan that will cover you for those 21 days only. If you’ll be away for six months, you can get a plan that will cover just those six months. You can choose to have maximum coverage ranging from $50,000 to $2,000,000, and you can select a deductible between $0 and $5,000. The cost will be much lower than you think. Your plan can include coverage for trip cancellations, too.
To see the cost for a plan — no matter where in the USA you live — go here — you can see rates and apply for a plan while there. It will only take you about five minutes. You’ll immediately receive your policy certificate and ID cards and you could leave tomorrow for your trip.
