Your Peace of Mind

Global Protective Solutions

Specialised medical travel benefits coverage you can trust

While the risks of medical complications from our highly qualified providers are low, all surgical procedures carry certain risks and complications can and do occur. We are proud to partner with Custom Assurance Placements, who administer the Global Protective Solutions (GPS) program. GPS is the worldwide leader in providing risk mitigation solutions specifically for international medical travelers.

International medical travel requires unique and specialized protection, which standard travel insurance policies typically exclude or do not address. Usually, standard travel insurance excludes any travel related to scheduled elective medical/dental treatments or procedures, and thus will not provide any benefits in all likelihood, and certainly no coverage in the event of a complication from scheduled elective surgery.  Further, when a medical complication arises it is usually the patient’s responsibility for paying additional medical expenses. By participating in the GPS program, this gives you the needed financial protection and peace of mind. 

GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related activities as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your scheduled elective procedure.  It is the only package available that provides protection while you are in the host country and upon your returning home for a period of 6 months.  Travel companion coverage can be included.

The primary benefits cover two broad areas:

BENEFITS RELATED TO YOUR PROCEDURE / TREATMENT

BENEFITS RELATED TO TRAVEL

Additional Medical / Surgical Treatment as a result of a Complication

Travel Cancellation, Delay and Loss of Baggage

Additional Expenses for Travel, Meals & Accommodations as a result of a Complication

Emergency Medical Coverage related to Travel Activities

Accidental Death

Accidental Death

Emergency Transportation

Repatriation of Mortal Remains

24 Hour – Emergency Medical Assistance Service

and much more…

The above provides only a brief overview of benefits and services available to enrolled participants

Ease your mind in knowing that you can receive outstanding medical care at reasonable prices and enjoy the added benefit of knowing that as an international medical traveler you are protected with specialist protection of Global Protective Solutions.
