The policy is an Emergency Medical Policy, so any treatment necessary due to a covered accident or emergency sickness will be covered up to $100,000 per person. Pre-existing conditions are covered up to $25,000 per person, but treatment must be on an EMERGENCY basis and not for normal follow ups or prescriptions. The first treatment must occur within 30 days of the covered accident or initial onset of emergency sickness. Preventative, routine, pregnancy, normal dental and elective care visits are not covered. For example, if a covered participant falls and breaks a leg or has an appendicitis attack, it would be covered. Birth of a child or teeth cleaning at a dentist would not be covered.
Ideally, when considering the need for medical assistance, you should call Generali Global Assistance at 855-901-6712 (Domestic) or +1-240-330-1551 (International), and they will direct you to the closest medical facility.
You may also go to the GardaWorld website and identify a facility near by in the Medical Network tab on the Home Page. If there are no facilities within a reasonable distance, you may go to any other facility. However, staying within the Generali Global Assistance Network avoids paying for out of pocket expenses at the time of treatment or release and then having to wait for reimbursement.
Generali Global Assistance has a network of almost 10,000 providers in 130 countries that are audited using 200 criteria by the Generali Global Assistance International Medical Committee to ensure quality care.
