Azimuth Risk Solutions, LLC, a leader in the International Benefits Marketplace, is closely monitoring the emerging Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus.

In conjunction with our health care partners and the travel medical insurance community, Azimuth is closely monitoring the emerging MERS Situation around the globe.  At this time, Azimuth has not generated a specific travel advisory for MERS situated countries.  We also have not officially issued coverage exclusions for travel to these communities at this time.

We continue to recommend that all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and recommendations be closely adhered to by international travelers.  We also strongly recommend that international travelers continue to monitor the CDC or their home country communicable disease control monitoring entity for changes.
