A few more reasons to sell GeoBlue plans…

  • This product is filed with DOI! Most travel policies are not filed with DOI and would not be covered by your E & O coverage.
  • Medical evacuation and repatriation benefits to the states. This is not covered as an emergency under your health plan. The average cost of medical evacuation to the states is about 25,000 to 100,000. Could be more for remote locations.
  • Plans that start at no deductible to large deductible at an affordable rate.
  • Turnaround time for the guaranteed issue products is immediate. Usually 72 hours for medically underwritten products.
  • GeoBlue concierge-level services will help 24/7 to find the closest hospital, arrange direct billing for international medical events and do medical monitoring.
  • Easy to use online tools for the members once enrolled. All claims are filed for you by approved hospital and doctors.
