Default United States cruises

Too many people have "assumed" that their health insurance covers them outside the United States and have ended up in big financial trouble. Very few hospitals or doctors "bill" you in foreign countries. They want up front payments. You can max out a credit card very quickly when this occurs.

I urge everyone to check their health policy to make sure they are covered outside the country and it also covers medical evacuation and repatriation.

If it doesn't then you need a supplemental travel policy.

Also: Pre-existing conditions can make a travel policy worthless if they are not waived. Most policies require purchase within 7 - 14 days to waive the pre-existing conditions clause.

Take care,
Very few cruises solely in the US ? I disagree .There are hundreds if not more cruises from various parts of this country to Alaska .
There are cruises from NYC to Fla .Cruises from NYC to New England .

My insurance is with Aetna .This is one of the top 10 carriers and they cover me any place on the planet .
