The GeoBlue Trekker Essential is a multi-trip Medical plan which offers emergency medical coverage while you are traveling abroad. This plan covers trips up to 70 days in length (per trip) that you will be taking outside the country during the year. The Trekker Essential plan does require you to have primary health insurance in place, but there is no exclusion for pre-existing conditions. This plan has lower limits than the Trekker Choice plan.

GeoBlue Trekker Essential
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.

I was very pleased to have the piece of mind with this plan. Fortunately I did not have to use it, but anticipate other trips this year so will not have to search for coverage again.

My husband died suddenly while we were vacationing in Costa Rica. I called GeoBlue and they were MOST helpful every step of the way. They assisted with the transport of the body to the funeral home, made all the arrangements necessary for them. GeoBlue also provided a name at the US Embassy as my contact person who took care of the death certificate and the mortuary passport for the remains to be brought back to the United States. I do not believe I could have done all of this without the help and support of GeoBlue and have recommended them to all my family and friends.
