Medical Travel Insurance
It’s advisable to purchase specialist Travel Insurance policy – a standard policy won’t cover you. I recommend Medical Travel Shield if you are travelling abroad for Dental Treatment,Cosmetic Surgery or Elective Surgery check your standard travel insurance; chances are it will not cover you if you are going abroad for treatment. So, you need a specialist insurance product.
