Insurance You will be glad to know that up to this point, we have never had a
car accident while on pilgrimage. Nor has anyone on pilgrimage with us ever had
an injury necessitating a visit to the Emergency Room, or even seeing a doctor.
With one exception: myself. I was once clawed by a feral cat, and had to see a
doctor to get some antibiotics. We have indeed been blessed. And we take this
safety record very seriously. We are committed to doing all we can to ensure
that this record continues. Having said that, we remain aware of the possibility
of something happening that would require the services of a doctor or hospital
care for one of our participants. We’ve heard stories of people that while
traveling internationally, thought they had adequate health insurance coverage
with their credit cards or US Health insurance, only to find out otherwise once
overseas. Consequently, travel medical insurance covering “overseas medical
treatment/evacuation/repatriation services and accidental death and
dismemberment” is mandatory for all participants.
In reality, we are now copying what most Travel agencies and guided tour organizations do automatically. We are calling this plan our ‘Better Safe than Sorry’ plan. This would mean, among other things, that you would be at least partially covered medically if something did happen while on pilgrimage with us. This kind of insurance is inexpensive for short limited travel such as this. With our insurance company, for the state of Texas, the price for $50,000 coverage in 2015 was $28.49 for primary, and $46.75 for a couple. For $100,000 coverage it is $38.17 for primary, and $54.89 for a couple. And so forth, up to $1,000,000 coverage.
FYI, you may contact our insurance agent if you like. She works through all insurance companies, and can run quotes for you no matter where you live, and also enroll you as your agent if you so desire. You may contact her directly long distance at: 1-800-880-0414. Her name is Eloise Chapman, of The Chapman Group (www.chapmangroup.com). She has been a great help to us, but whatever works best for you is fine with us. We will need to have some kind of verification from you in writing once you have purchased your insurance. We are not mandating that you get Travel Insurance for trip cancellation, etc. Although you may want to consider this as well, we are only mandating the above coverage. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please sign below that you have read, understood and will comply with this policy. Signature: __________________________________ Date: ___________
