Travel Season Brings Sales Opportunities

June 15, 2018

We have entered travel season.  Most insureds are not aware of the medical insurance pitfalls that come with international travel.  Medicare is even a bigger pitfall in that there is NO overseas coverage.  Some Medicare Supplements will carry minimal riders providing a small level of coverage but may not be very comprehensive.  When traveling internationally, it is always a good idea to get an International Policy that provides multi lingual support.  In many cases, an International Policy can eliminate the need to prepay upfront and submit for reimbursement after you get home—after having all the bills translated and converted (at your cost).  Take a look at the enclosed link.  We can offer our brokers a similar personalized link that your potential clients can “self-serve” quote, enroll, and fulfill their policy all over the internet while you receive the full broker commission.  Call our office for details!

Sales Idea – Filling The Void

May 6, 2013

I don’t know of anything more exciting that traveling – new countries, new customs, new friends. We all know clients taking that dream vacation, or traveling through Europe after graduation, or honeymooning in exotic places. The last thing on their minds is medical insurance.

Sudden illness or accidents in an unfamiliar environment can be scary and pricy. Unfortunately, many consumers do not understand the limitations and many times complications of trying to use domestic coverage at times of international claims! That’s why short-term travel medical insurance gives your clients peace of mind. Deal with a carrier Premiums are reasonably priced for comprehensive coverage.

Short term travel insurance can be purchased in daily or monthly rates, for a minimum of ten days to two years. Plan deductibles for individuals and dependents can range from $0 to $2500 and benefit maximums from $50,000 to $2,000,000. It is important to note that these policies do not cover pre-existing conditions.

There are available plans for US and non-US citizens traveling out of their home country. So visit our website at http://www.resourcebrokerage.com for available plan outlines or call us at 847-598-6006 for further information.
