Why do I need additional Travel Insurance if I already have domestic health insurance?Most hospitals overseas will not accept your domestic health insurance card. They want your credit card instead because they expect payment up front before you receive care. If you’re not prepared to pay all your medical bills out of pocket, you need travel insurance. Make sure you check your insurance policy BEFORE you travel overseas to see if your coverage extends to the country you are traveling to.
