With professional networking opportunities, engaging speakers and an unbeatable social calendar, ITIC Americas offers everything the travel and health insurance industry needs.
On Monday, March 5th at 9 am Dr. Delaune will discuss cruise travel and medical assistance problems. This session will involve a review of the perils of cruising, and the main problems seen by assistance companies in this sector. The session will cover the common issue of patients being left in ports where the medical care nearby may not be the best. Similarly, the medical care may not be appropriate for the patient, resulting in an air ambulance evacuation and higher costs.
