Short Answer

If you have been infected with Ebola while traveling, please contact the 24-Hour Emergency Assistance number provided to you with your travel insurance policy.

 

More Detail

Contacting the 24-Hour Emergency Assistance number provided to you with your travel insurance policy will allow you to notify your provider so they can begin communication with your treating physician.

Emergency Medical coverage may be available to provide coverage for the cost of medical treatment related to an unexpected illness such as Ebola.

If a local physician recommends that you should return home for treatment, appropriate transportation can be arranged by the emergency assistance provider included in your policy. If your policy includes trip interruption coverage, you may also be reimbursed for the unused portion of your trip expenses if you have to return home early due to an unforeseen illness.

This coverage is subject to change at any time as conditions related to Ebola change.

This information may vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help!
