A Horror Story Averted!

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Ross Quigley’s article in the summer 2010 edition of CSANews (‘Let me first say that Medipac is fine!’) hit the nail on the head. I suspect that our personal case illustrates the need very clearly. We went for a short, three-week holiday that included a one-week cruise out of Tampa last spring, […]

In April 2006 retired federal public servants had their coverage for foreign travel health benefits increased from $100,000.00 to $500,000.00 for a continuous forty day period. Added health and surgical features were also announced. In view […]

When to Call

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I am concerned about Medipac travel insurance. The policy on page 2 states as follows: “You or someone on Your behalf (if you are unable to do so) MUST call Medipac Assist BEFORE You seek Medical Treatment.” If my wife or I suddenly had an emergency, such as on of us collapsing, […]

The editors are […]

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Thank you very much for listening to my “It’s Just Not Fair” complaint about Medipac rates concerning former Aneurysm patients. I have just looked at the Early Bird rates for this year’s trip and I have substantial savings compared to the old policy. I am sure I am not alone in this […]
