Medical Complications & Travel Cover Insurance
Although Costa Rica has a standard of care equal to – and arguably better than – the US, there is always a risk of unforeseen medical or dental complications. Just as this is a possibility at home, it is a possibility anywhere else. If you experienced a problem with your dentistry while in Costa Rica, our providers desire to resolve the problem usually free of charge. However, once home, you would see your local dentist to address any minor issues such as a bite adjustment or the re-seating of a crown which had come loose due to excessive grinding. Still, international travel for dental work requires a journey of many miles which makes it difficult for a follow up visit and Destinations Dental would like you to consider complications insurance.
Global Protective Solutions
Specialty Medical Complications / Travel Cover
While the risks of dental complications from our highly qualified providers are low, all 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) programs. GPS is the worldwide leader in providing medical complication and travel services / benefits specifically for international medical travelers.
Usually standard travel insurance excludes medical travel activities, and thus will not provide any benefits in all likelihood, and certainly no coverage in the event of a complication from a scheduled elective surgery. Further, when a medical complication does happen it is usually the patient’s responsibility for paying the additional medical expenses. By enrolling to participate in the GPS program, this gives you the needed peace of mind.
GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness 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 as well as when you return home for a period of 6 months. Travel companion coverage can also be chosen.
Ease your mind in knowing that you can receive outstanding medical care at reasonable prices and enjoy the added benefit of knowing that if there is a complication you are protected. Your Advocate will have the enrollment details.
