Health insurance for US business trip

9 posts in this topic

Hello, I will go to the US to attend a trade fair. I am EU citizen and have my freelance activity registered with the German tax authorities. 
 

I want to have health insurance during my US trip, since it’s a business trip I presume I would need a business travel insurance. 
 

Do you know which insurance companies in Germany offer this option? Which one would you recomand?  
 

thanks.

Ask your krankenkasse what they recommend. 

 

Envivas Travel Plus through TK is easy to sign up for.

I have used care concept for a short duration policy. I never filed a claim though but was recommended by my broker long ago. Not expensive and takes 10 min on line. They have various policies so you have to look carefully. Some info in english but not all.

Allianz has some cheap travel insurance, that´s what we use when me or my wife travel intercontinental for business.

Thanks, do you know the exact name of the insurance? A website?

Try europ assistance

I pay 100/year I think, you can pick the coverage you want or need. Have used it and have had good experience with it.

Ihr Tarif: UnsereGesundeReise (UGR)

 

Hope it is enough info.
