International Travel Insurance

Most health insurance plans have limited benefits for coverage outside the United States, usually for no more than 30 days. Therefore, if you are going to be out of the country for an extended period of time, you will need to get international health insurance. These plans are surprisingly inexpensive, and can be purchased for various lengths of time.

In the year 2000 the President of our company, Wiley Long, along with his wife Christie, took a year off to travel around world. Before going, they researched travel health insurance companies and decided upon International Medical Group (IMG), which had the most comprehensive coverage, and also had plans which would pay for treatment in the U.S. if something serious happened and the decision was made to return home. Fortunately, there were no major mishaps. You can read about their trip on the website they kept up while traveling, Since coming back and establishing ColoHealth, we have become aware of another company that also offers good international rates, HCC Life Insurance Company. Because choice is always better, we represent both plans. These are the best international travel health insurance plans we are aware of.

Our recommendation is to compare the rates for each, since one my offer advantages over the other for certain plans and certain age ranges.

"Your customer service has been outstanding"

"Just a note of thanks.  We have been doing business with you for over a year now, and I wanted to say thank you for all your help with our health insurance.

When I first found your site on the internet for international health insurance, I was amazed that you replied to my questions right away.  I think it took me 3 months to decide and numerous emails, but you never pressured me, answered all my questions and led us in the right direction.

Your customer service has been outstanding.  Even tho I have not met you in person, I feel you and Fred are friends, and will look out for our best interest.  It is actually nice to feel that one is not just a number, but a valued customer.

Thanks again for all you and Fred do.  I am proud to recommend not only the company you represent, but will and have recommended your company for international health insurance.

Best wishes for continued success....
