Dear Friends, Like most of you, we've been ordered home by our national government and our frantic families.
If you are covered by any of the health insurance or medevac plans we've represented and you were in your international destination before the government warning was issued, you plan remains in full effect.
If your short-term travel plan's expiration date is before your return date you should be able to extend your coverage with full benefits up to one year. Your carrier will email renewal/extension offers a month or more before your coverage ends. If you haven't received a renewal/extension email, check your spam/junk folder.
We remain ready to assist you in any way we can.
Regards, Mike Altman MikeAltman@PV-Health.com USA: 949-720-1664
For nearly a decade, we’ve enjoyed helping hundreds of expats, snowbirds and vacationers explore the world without concern that a health issue would become a financial catastrophe.
We planned on retiring at the end of the current high season, but we didn't know it would end so abruptly.
We leave you with the lessons we’ve learned:
1. International travelers need travel health insurance.
2. In addition to health insurance everyone needs a separate emergency medical evacuation (Medevac) plan.
3. Expats living full time out of their home country need Expat Health insurance.
4. Everybody coming to Mexico needs to carry a Spanish-language In Case of Emergency (ICE) card.
A Spanish-Language In Case of Emergency Card Bad things happen everywhere including in paradise, so everyone should always carry an up to date Spanish-language card that identifies us, our medical history and who to contact for us if we are unconscious.
