Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) August 23, 2016
Tokio Marine HCC – Medical Insurance Service Group, a provider of global travel medical insurance, is working hard to ensure international travelers are covered in the event of a terrorist attack, crisis situation, or political unrest while abroad.
Policies like Tokio Marine HCC – MIS Group’s Atlas Premium offer coverage for eligible medical expenses for the treatment of injuries and illnesses resulting from an act of terrorism up to $50,000. Moreover, travel medical policy holders gain access to benefits like political and medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, local burial or cremation services, and emergency reunion, providing extra peace of mind.
Mark Carney, CEO of Tokio Marine HCC – MIS Group said, "Since the beginning of 2016, there have been over 400 terrorist attacks. Travelers should heed government warnings and be proactive in avoiding dangerous situations. However, attacks sometimes happen in countries where there is a chance of an occurrence, but no general reason to expect one. An uninsured traveler could be on the hook for all of their medical expenses, which can be costly. This is exactly what we want to avoid."
Another concern for international travelers is the possibility of being kidnapped and held for ransom. Our Crisis Response Coverage provides international travelers with access to a team of experts who negotiate ransom and return.
Crisis Response is a standard benefit with the purchase of an Atlas Travel plan, which provides $10,000 in crisis coverage, and Atlas Premium, which comes standard with $100,000 in crisis coverage. The Crisis Response benefit covers ransom, surrendered personal belongings, and negotiation fees.
Tokio Marine HCC – MIS Group is currently the only company offering Crisis Response as a standard benefit with the purchase of a travel medical insurance policy.
We will continue to do our part in offering policies with coverages that protect travelers during terrorist attacks and other crisis situations. We are confident that our policies offer some of the best and most comprehensive protections for travelers, as we were recently named a finalist for International Travel & Health Insurance Journal’s annual award ceremony in the “International Health Insurer of the Year” category.
