15My private health fund suspends my regular cover without prejudice for the duration of my travel when I take out their Travel Insurance for the same period. When returning home my Aussie health fund benefits kick in automatically and I can also claim a refund on any unused portion of the travel component (early return).
I have never claimed on travel insurance, but you know what they say:
Being forced to take medical advice from some dodgy witch doctor in the middle of nowhere (good luck with that), a few rupee.
Being hospitalised in a developed country for $1000 a day (up front please!), $7000-$10000 each week.
Being medivaced home out of a dangerous situation half way round the world with travel insurance picking up the tab, priceless.
