Travel Insurance
« on: July 31, 2007, 06:58:03 PM »
I have been getting ready to return to China and am checking medical insurance policies. I have just found one that seems to be extremely useful, and wondered if anyone else has used this company.

It is MedEx

And their policy for an individual with 50K USD coverage with a $100 USD deductible is a paltry $2.49 USD per day. This adds up to around $908 USD per year, and can be bought in small bites. When I talked to the woman at the phone, I found that coverage was very flexible, even covering hiring a care-giver should I have to be hospitalized or a non-medical companion for evacuation help if medevac helicopter is not needed and a commercial airline will do -- so it seems to be a HUMAN company.

Drawbacks: does not cover a motorcycle accident, including an e-bike (or anything that has a motor). Will cover a bike accident.

The reason I am asking is that it seems to be almost too good to be true.

Are there other companies people have had good/bad luck with?
