Protection for Your International Travel Plans
Each year millions of individuals depart their home countries for travel abroad for vacations, corporate or business travel, international study abroad, and missionary travel to name a few. Many international travelers discover the hard way that their home country medical insurance policies provide little or no coverage for losses incurred while on international trips or living abroad. Medical treatment away from home can be expensive and evacuation from a life threatening situation can cost thousands of dollars more than the cost of the trip abroad. HCC Medical Insurance Services helps take the risk out of international travel. Protection against these losses is available for individuals traveling outside of their home countries.
HCC Medical Insurance Services (HCCMIS) is a leading underwriter and administrator in the international insurance market. HCCMIS prides itself in providing responsive, accurate and cost effective solutions to individuals, families, corporations and other international groups who require access to international medical insurance and high quality healthcare services around the world.

Why Buy Travel Insurance?
The answer is easy. Whether your group is traveling for business or pleasure, international travel involves risk. You may arrive at your destination to find that a member of your group’s luggage with personal items has disappeared. A personal emergency may necessitate early return home for a member of your group. A medical emergency may require hospitalization or even air evacuation. In most cases, your existing insurance will not provide adequate protection for these and other risks. Without appropriate travel insurance, members of your group may be in jeopardy of significant financial liability. HCC Medical Insurance Services can’t take the risk out of international travel, but if the unforeseen happens, we will be there to help you.
