Travel Insurance Reviews GeoBlue Trekker Essential

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
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

Although I didn't need to use the plan, the representative I spoke to when I thought I might need to was very helpful and understanding of my needs. He email me a list of providers Geotrekker contracted with and assured me that even if I couldn't locate one of them, my bills would be covered by your company. He provided me with peace of mind.

I can’t really rate the plan since, thankfully, I never had to file a claim. Therefore I have no basis recommend it at this time.

The cost does seem reasonable if the coverage and hoops you have to go through are as suggested in their literature.

It is somewhat more tricky to sign up for this plan than the others, and my password did not work when I tried to contact them overseas. They did help me by email to establish another password. But since their office is closed on weekends, it took awhile.

Fortunately our trip did not require any medical care. I was impressed that you provided a list of medical facilities in or near our destinations. we are eligible for Tricare coverage via US military facilities, but the important aspect of the coverage for us is the emergency transportation feature should anything major occur.
Thanks
