With Seven Corners they also sell annual medical only plans that cover multiple overseas trips (and you can buy international excluding United States) . If you are over 65 to 75 the coverage amounts are reduced but they will still sell to you.

They do cover medical repatriation to your home country after evacuation to the nearest hospital. As always read the details and call if necessary. Not everyone can afford the expense of primary coverage but instead they want to use insurance as it is intended, for rare events they are not otherwise insured for.

I have Medicare Advantage since I wanted to continue to use my Kaiser Permanente plan. Our retiree plan includes some overseas medical so buying any kind of travel medical supplement is probably overkill for me.

I supposed I should start my own thread rather than usurp this one? We are planning a trip for 5 of us, 3 that I'm paying for to Ireland June 2024. My wife and I will likely fly biz class and perhaps pay for premium economy for my daughter if the other travelers opt for that. I made an initial WAG of $18,000 for the trip (which on second thought is probably quite low) just to get an idea of how much travel insurance would cost. For medical evacuation / repatriation, Covid, interruption, etc., I see prices of from $500 to almost $2000 and for CAFR, cancel for any reason, from $2000 - $2500. Ages of travelers are (or will be) 22, 69, 71
We also have the Chase Saphire Reserved which in several cases uses the wording: "You may be covered..."
Would you suggest:
A) that I post this on a new thread
B) that I look into Chase exact details more before doing anything
C) that I buy some form of this rather expensive insurance for an expensive trip
D) some combination of above
E) do something else
