Petersen adds to travel medical coverage

Company brief

Petersen International Underwriters has announced new additions to its USAway Major Medical plan. The plan covers US travellers heading outside the US, and US expatriates living in other countries, can be purchased for between one day and 11 months of coverage, and includes any medically necessary treatment. Of the additions, Petersen is primarily promoting cost reductions, which it describes as ‘significant’, due to the online-only enrolment process – which has reportedly been streamlined.

“The revamp of the USAway plan is a game changer in the travel insurance world,” said Thomas Petersen, Vice-President of the company, “making the product available in nearly every [US] state, with an improved quoting page and reasonable rates. This plan is essential for the protection of any traveller from unforeseen medical expenses while travelling or living abroad.”
