Travel Insurance for Non-US Destinations

Posted date : Nov 7, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I was really pleased to see “Cuba a new option for seniors” which will now permit me to enjoy winter sun, provided I can get travel health insurance which I can afford.

Rate Category

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I have been a member of CSA for many years and have been insured by Medipac without claim. There is one facet of my dealings with Medipac that I believe to be completely unfair. In our dealings with Medipac, they ask the question, Have you ever had cancer? I had bowel cancer […]

Medical Evacuation

Posted date : Nov 6, 2017.

Dear Bird Talk, I feel the following letter would be helpful to all snowbirds if it were printed in the CSA News. It might keep them from making the same mistakes as we did. Fellow Snowbirds, We have been fortunate to have been able to spend six months in Florida for the last several years. […]
