Insurance Coverage while in Egypt

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to go to Egypt this fall but I have one concern and I'm hoping someone can answer my question. We are well traveled worldwide and I am retired although my husband is still working. When we travel, we always purchase Travel insurance and we also carry Medjet Assist for evacuation/transportation needs. My husband is a severe diabetic although he receives good medical care and constantly works to control it. It is a long term genetic problem and weight isn't the problem. However, in the past, when I've purchased travel insurance, I've read that it doesn't cover certain 'unrest' type situations. We are excited and ready to plan the vacation, but we feel that due to our age and his health issue we would be careless if we were to go without health insurance in case there was a need for it. I'd appreciate any info regarding travel insurance coverage and whether it is effective in Egypt or not. I can call Medjet on the transportation part as we are currently covered by them, but they don't carry travel insurance. Thanks for any information.
