If I get sick with coronavirus on my trip, will my medical expenses be covered?

If you purchase one of our International Comprehensive or Annual Multi Trip policies and you contract coronavirus while overseas, your policy can offer you:

  • 24/7 access to our Emergency Assistance team, who can help you get local medical care; and
  • cover for necessary medical expenses incurred overseas (including hospitalisation) for up to 12 months from the date the illness first appears, where the illness continues; and
  • cover for medical evacuation or repatriation, if we determine it’s necessary in consultation with the attending medical practitioner.

We only offer the cover mentioned above if your symptoms first appear, and your coronavirus diagnosis is made, after you purchased your policy. 

Exclusions and benefit limits apply. Most cover is subject to a 72-hour waiting period if you purchase when you are already travelling. Please see the Product Disclosure Statement for details.
