When preparing to go on a mission trip abroad, it is important to remember to check on medical and trip insurance. The last thing you want to worry about in an emergency is if you are covered for these costs. It is important to note that your health insurance may not cover you in the event of an emergency overseas. You should consult with your provider before going on an international mission trip.

There are many options for medical and trip insurance. Here are a few links the Diocese has found for mission groups to explore. We have had good experiences with www.gomissiontrip.com in the past. However, after exploring options in detail, it is ultimately up to you and your group to decide which program will give you the best coverage.

You can also find out in more detail about abroad medical insurance, its importance, and other resources on the State Department’s website.
