We did not have to use it. But, we had peace of mind. Very affordable. I will buy again for any international travel.

My wife and I were on a week-long birding trip. She had her left wrist in a cast, and we were a little concerned if something happened, a fall, for instance, she would need to get specialized care. The only coverage we needed was emergency evacuation, and MEDEX coverage fit the bill for us, and gave us a bit of peace of mind. Thankfully, we didn't need to use the service, but it was good to have, nonetheless.

Easy to obtain and peace of mind in case of a medical emergency. Most people don't realize if you are in Medicare and need/obtain medical services out of the U.S., MMEDICARE WILL NOT COVER YOUR EXPENSES.
