Overseas medical coverage is required by Biblical Expeditions; however, travel insurance is only recommended. Biblical Expeditions does not issue such insurance policies and any need to secure such a policy is the participant’s personal responsibility. Program participants may have to pay for medical services upfront but will be reimbursed by the insurance company. Biblical Expeditions requires documentation of overseas medical coverage. This can provide ongoing care in the event that a participant requires long-term care and services upon returning to the United States or residing country. Biblical Expeditions is not involved in securing the participant’s personal coverage.
Optional Travel Insurance:
If participants wish to protect their travel investment against an unforeseen cancellation or a needed emergency return flight home, it is recommended that they purchase a travel insurance policy. If a participant desires to purchase such a policy, he/she should be aware that most insurance companies will restrict certain coverage unless he/she submits for coverage within 14 days of registration for the program. Consequently, the participant should not delay in purchasing insurance.
If participants need to purchase either medical or travel insurance, they should refer to the list of providers below. Please note Biblical Expeditions is not involved in securing travel insurance or the medical insurance offered by these companies and is not under any contract with the companies listed below. Any questions or concerns related to travel or medical insurance should be directed to Biblical Expeditions.
