GeoBlue Trekker Essential

The GeoBlue Trekker Essential is a multi-trip travel medical plan which offers emergency medical coverage while traveling abroad more than once in a year. This plan covers trips up to 70 days in length per trip taken outside the United States during a period of one year. The Trekker Essential plan does require you to have primary health insurance in place, but there is no exclusion for pre-existing conditions.

With this plan, the medical limit is static at $50,000 and there is a $50 deductible. There is also a $10,000 benefit for claims resulting from a listed hazardous activity such as, downhill skiing and scuba diving (certification by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) or the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI) required or diving under the supervision of a certified instructor).

With the Trekker Essential plan you are provided with an emergency assistance number to call 24/7 in the event you need medical assistance or an emergency evacuation during your trip. The plan also features the Direct Pay program, which will pay medical bills upfront if the appointment was made with a medical provider in the GeoBlue network and GeoBlue is aware of the appointment 24-hours in advance.

Also, you will have access to detailed security profiles and provider profiles with information regarding doctors and hospitals in the area where you will be traveling. This can help you to prepare for travel to your destination and make informed decisions about your medical treatment if there is an emergency during your trip.

The GeoBlue Travel Medical plans are available for purchase only before your departure date. If you have already departed on your trip, do not purchase this plan because you will not have any coverage.

For our needs the plan was very cost reasonable. I highly recommend it.

I have been buying travel/medical insurance for years, and like many others, I have never had to use it. Unfortunately, my record of not having to use my travel/medical insurance came to an end while on a 2 month trip to Thailand. I had a medical issue that had been ongoing for about 4 days that seemed to be getting worse. I contacted GeoBlue with my issue and without hesitation they assisted me in finding a hospital of my choice. The hospital was in-network, so therefore, I had no deductible. They forwarded the paperwork to the hospital and it was waiting for me when I arrived by Uber. After consultation with a emergency room doctor, it was concluded that 3 tests would be performed: complete blood test, sonar, and x-ray. Fortunately, everything came back negative and after a few days everything returned to normal and I continued my trip without incident. GeoBlue stood behind its policy without question. They were incredibly helpful and followed up with me to make sure everything was okay and ask if they could do anything else for me. It's nice to know that you have insurance company looking out for your best interest when you are 10k miles from home--I never thought I would say that about an insurance company. GeoBlue is highly recommended and I won't considered any other insurance company for overseas travel. p.s. thanks to insuremytrip for suggesting/recommending this policy.
