Short-term supplemental health insurance
for your Nice Holiday Apartment Rental:
Short-term supplemental health insurance for your nice Cote d’Azur holiday. If you plan on traveling to the city of Nice ( the heart of the Cote d’Azur), you may want to look into a short-term supplemental health insurance policy for your holiday rental, holiday apartment or holiday studio in the French Riviera city of Nice . Many domestic health insurance companies won't provide coverage (or will offer only partial coverage) if you get sick in your holiday rental, holiday apartment or holiday studio in the Cote d’Azur or get into an accident outside of the United States in your holiday rental, holiday apartment or holiday studio in the French Riviera city of Nice . Short-term health insurance policies usually combine accident and/or sickness in your holiday rental, holiday apartment or holiday studio coverage with medical evacuation coverage, which pays all or part of the cost of transporting you back to the United States in a medical emergency in your holiday rental, holiday apartment or holiday studio. These plans can also offer language interpreters for medical situations in Nice, refills of prescriptions forgotten at home, and replacement of documents lost in the Cote d’Azur, like credit cards or passports stolen in the French Riviera. The premiums are inexpensive, in part because the coverage has limitations. Pre-existing conditions are usually not covered, and there are limits on the dollar amounts as well as activities (e.g., you may not be covered at all for mountaineering in the Cote d’Azur hills, driving off-road vehicles in the French Riviera country side, etc.). As with any insurance policy, do some comparison shopping before you buy, and read the policy carefully before coming to Nice. It's always a good idea to ask what is and is not covered. Even if you plan on traveling stateside, you may want to consider supplemental health insurance. Costs incurred as a result of routine medical care from an out-of-network provider are generally only partially covered by preferred provider organizations (PPOs), and health maintenance organizations (HMOs) may not cover these costs at all. Check your policy or call your insurer for more information before traveling to the French Riviera.
