GeoBlue Trekker Essential formerly HTH Worldwide

The GeoBlue Trekker Essential is a multi-trip 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.

The tour of the Silk Road to China was done well. It was quite a fast pace with early rising, early breakfasts and on the bus with luggage by 8:30 AM to satisfy the schedule of our sight seeing. Time for shopping was limited and we would have liked a more leisure time in this area. Everyone was healthy despite the challenges of alot of walking and climbing many stairs. Luckily, younger and more able persons were on hand to lend their support. I am 83 years old but was able to physically enjoy all the visions of China that were offered to us. There were only two nights at the excellent hotels when we were able to stay two nights. This time allowed us to do successful hand laundry. Otherwise, it was one-night stay, just slipping out the necessary clothing for the next day. Weather was great with no sand storms or heavy rains. Even the 13 plus hours of air travel was comfortable. I am thankful for this reasonable cost of a one-year subscription to your service and hope I never have to use it! Thank you for giving me a peace of mind!

We did not need our plan due to health issues during our trip. It was required by the tour group. In our search for a comprehensive plan for a reasonable price, GeoBlue stood out. We are in excellent health and in our early 60's, so this plan gave us comfort to know we were covered as we huffed and puffed up the mountain-side to the Sun-Gate of Machu Picchu.

Relieved to have a plan and more relieved not to use it. We are taking our next trip in April and hope it will be as uneventful
