Seven Corners Alerts Spring Breakers that They Need Travel Insurance to Vacation Abroad
Date:3/10/2008

Most health insurance programs do not provide coverage to international

travelers

INDIANAPOLIS, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven Corners, one of the industry's most experienced travel health insurance providers, alerts parents and students that they should purchase travel insurance if they plan to travel abroad for spring break vacations. Most health insurance programs do not provide coverage outside of the continental United States, nor does Medicare or Medicaid.

According to the United States Travel Insurance Association, Americans traveling on leisure trips spent more than $1.5 billion on travel insurance in 2007. This statistic represents more than 65 million travelers last year who realized the importance of purchasing travel insurance.

Travel insurance is not only appropriate for people traveling to unstable and dangerous parts of the world where disease outbreaks, terrorist activity, kidnappings and political unrest are common. It is also necessary to protect all international travelers from unexpected and expensive illnesses, accidents or emergencies.

"Many people mistakenly assume that their health insurance, home owner's insurance or credit card policies will adequately cover them when they travel outside of the United States," commented Jim Krampen, Seven Corners' executive officer and co-founder. "The fact is, they don't. Your best bet is to purchase comprehensive travel insurance."

Travel insurance includes much more than simply trip cancellation, trip interruption or lost luggage coverage. Seven Corners' international travel medical insurance policies also cover prescriptions, doctors' visits, dental emergencies, ambulance transportation, hospitalizations, medical evacuations, political evacuations, repatriations, bail bond assistance and more. In addition to affordable insurance policies that protect travelers, Seven Corners also offers a variety of resources that make traveling internationally easier, safer and more enjoyable.

Seven Corners policy holders are eligible for 24-hour multilingual assistance. This includes access to pre-trip information about specific country health care, political and cultural issues. Seven Corners also connects international travelers with legal and health care resources while they are abroad. This includes access to one of the industry's most comprehensive network of thousands of U.S.-based and international doctors, pharmacies and hospitals.
