An overview of my coverage. This is the same company my last two corporate jobs used for us.

Here's the question tho.....how many have actually used the medical insurance for an emergency in the DR or any 3rd world country?? Like someone said how was the hassle, did you have to get reimbursed, was you on the phone all day on hold or talking to a mf who didn't speak good English? Has it been worth it so far?

had insurance one year and already used it once since I spend so much time overseas.  minor illness, a couple visits to a local clinic in costa rica.  geoblue insurance wasn't partnered/accepted there so i paid cash. to my surprise it was very easy to go online and send them the receipts and I was reimbursed in full within 30 days.  easier than I thought.  I won't travel without it again.  like they say imagine if it's a serious accident.  I guess a credit card may pay but they have to be harder to deal with and geoblue has enough partner hospitals often you won't pay anything upfront but good to know how quickly they reimbursed me even if I do.  if you're overseas a short time maybe you take the risk and like they've said sometimes care is cheap out here.  not always though.  surely not if you're injured in another first world country.  I took my chances when young and mostly in 3rd world and I got lucky.

I travel insured as I have coverage on two of my credit cards. I just make sure to book the flight with one of those cards. There’s stipulations as to how long you are away and such but there’s good coverage none the less.

Don't drive cars on the MOST DANGEROUS roads in the most dangerous country for car accidents in the Western Hemisphere and you will cut down your need for medical coverage down to very little.....

Well Hell....Might as well spend 2000pesos and keep the car to use all day and all night to go wherever you want, when you want, and for how long you want.  Just drive slow and everyone will go around you. Take your time and drive to stay alive.

Again, if you can afford it do it.  My boy got sick in Colombia and we considered Medievac and it was about $90,000 and the insurance covered it.  It still was $7000.

I do. On my first trip to Sosua, before going, I got it. A chica got over on me and took some of my stuff. So my trip insurance and my renters covered everything. Ever since then I don't think I've ever taken a trip without it. Thankfully I've only used it once for medical, also during my first trip to Sosua, when I burned my leg on a moto's muffler. Got it treated in Santo Domingo. Paid $50 up front and got it reimbursed. It's an added expense for sure, but it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

I think at a minimum one should buy the insurance the major airlines use on their websites. I:-) cheap and I've heard good things from some people who had to use it.

Oh yea......stay outta them f--kin rental cars!

So a girl stole something from your room and your insurance covered it?  What did you have to do?  File a police report?  How much was the items that were stolen?
