December 10. Several international destinations have begun requiring travel insurance as a price of entry that specifically covers COVID-19 and related disruptions, such as mandatory quarantine or expensive PCR testing. These plans, however, are often limited, with the host country promising to cover any costs deemed medically necessary.
You also could purchase independent travel medical insurance on your own to cover injuries or illnesses that arise while abroad, such as a heart attack or a broken leg. The majority of these plans, however, will not cover unforeseen afflictions due to COVID-19 and won’t help with emergency evacuations.
Although adequate care at your destination may be available if you test positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms, you might prefer to recover from your illness in the comfort of your home country.
Covac Global is a global COVID-19 evacuation and repatriation company founded in 2020 specifically to provide medical evacuations during the pandemic without a hospitalization requirement. A person only needs a positive PCR test and at least one self-reported symptom.
From there, the Covac Global team will step in to coordinate all entry and exits with relevant authorities to facilitate your return home. You will travel via a private aeromedical transport with you and two medical flight crew members on board. Their qualifications will be based on the user’s needs but could include a critical care nurse, paramedic or physician.
