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 $500,000 and there is a $200 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.

The Trekker Essential plan offers 24/7 telemedicine visits at no extra cost to members. Through Global TeleMD, members are able to secure a same day virtual visit with GeoBlue’s global network of doctors. The program offers multiple language options and consultation notes are sent directly to your phone. Additionally, Trekker Essential members have access to GeoBlue’s award-winning app providing medical term and phrase translations, a medicine equivalent tool, and news and safety information based on your location, and more.

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.
