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.

The plan was wonderful especially since I had no claims.

Easy to purchase with good info up front. Fortunately we did not have to file a claim on our trip to Africa!

Fell down in small town France and did Bad Things to my wrist. Suffered overnight (of course it was Sat night) and went to ER in middle size town France Sunday morning. I am a physician who speaks some French. Well cared for, got physician exam, Xrays and even CT scan (would have wanted Xrays in US--probably not CT scan). Physician gave me his note (in French) and a prescription for a brace (appropriate care for my severe sprain with no fracture) and directions to the "on call" pharmacy for the region to get the splint. Drove about 30 miles, got the splint and off we went. When I got home 2 weeks later, went to GeoBlue website and filled out claim, scanned my ER note and prescription and submitted it. 2 weeks later claim was pain less the $50 deductible. Total satisfaction. One fo my big issues before I bought this coverage was the paucity of "I used it and ti worked" reviews as opposed to the "I was so relieved that I had it but never needed it" reviews. Bravo Zulu--well done to GeoBlue for doing what they said they would do
