International Travel Insurance

International Travel Insurance  

Overview

International Travel Insurance provides medical, transportation, and other travel-related services for members and their families while traveling or living abroad. If healthcare is needed or an accident, injury or emergency occurs while overseas, this type of policy can help fill the gaps left behind by US-based medical and travel insurance policies.

 

For ASME Members Who Travel or Work Outside Their Home Country

The Gateway International Insurance Plans offer solutions for special insurance needs when traveling abroad. They are available to members, their families, and associates.
 

The plans are useful in many situations, and particularly when existing coverage is limited, during international business or leisure travel; when participating in academic, business or cultural exchange activities; or for employees, contract workers or consultants on international assignments.
 

All plans offer combined insurance and services, such as coverage for accident and illness medical expenses, transportation expenses associated with medical evacuation and repatriation, indemnity in event of accidental death or dismemberment, and worldwide travel and medical assistance services. Depending on the plan selected, other features and options are available.
