The MEDEX TravMed Choice Inbound is available to non-U.S. residents who need medical coverage while traveling on trips up to one year in length to the U.S. There are multiple medical limits to select from, ranging from $10,000 to $250,000. This plan also offers Emergency Medical Evacuation and Accidental Death and Dismemberment benefits, as well as hazardous sports coverage.
It is particularly difficult to comment on the adequacy - or otherwise - of a medical insurance without having been through the claims procedure - which, fortunately, we have not had to do.
However, we would like to see cover offered - perhaps optionally - for cancellation of air fares; other pre-booked items of expenditure can usually be cancelled without loss - provided that time limits are observed. Ticket conditions can be very restrictive and lead to the loss of the whole fare if a holiday has to be cancelled.
Similarly, cover for some items such as repatriation costs for children could be made optional - not everyone travels with children!
We have found this insurance to be particularly valuable as, although citizens of the UK, we are (with one exception that I know of) unable to get travel/ medical insurance from a UK company as we are resident in France - Heaven knows why!
