A guide to medical travel insurance (medical tourism insurance)

Insurance for medical travellers is a developing area within medical tourism. New medical travel insurance products have begun to appear. Many are aimed either at UK or US based medical travellers. We provide an overview of those products that are widely available to people travelling for treatment. Other products are on offer or are being developed which are only available from the medical tourism agency or hospital that you book with. Some medical tourism agencies and hospitals offer their own cost-over run insurance.

Our guide to medical travel insurance helps the medical tourist to understand why they need specialist travel insurance if they are travelling abroad for treatment. Medical travel insurance is travel insurance designed for the specific requirements and risks of medical travellers.
