Mission Trip Insurance
Mission trip insurance is important for anyone planning on doing mission work overseas. It does not matter if you are traveling with a religious group to feed the hungry or a medical organization to treat the sick; as soon as you leave your home country, your domestic health insurance coverage most likely will not cover you for illness or injury. HCC Medical Insurance Services (HCCMIS) specializes in helping missionaries do their best work by providing them with the peace of mind that reliable mission trip insurance can bring.

Fortunately, HCCMIS offers a number of mission trip insurance products for just dollars a day.

Top Five Missionary Illnesses and Injuries
|Construction Accidents||If you are traveling to do construction work, consider this: In many remote locations in third world countries, it could take hours to get to a hospital for treatment of even the smallest injuries.|
|Parasites||Chances are good that you are planning a trip to a region that has been affected by earthquakes, floods, or large storms. Educate yourself on the best times to travel to avoid experiencing these natural disasters firsthand.|
|Natural Disasters||Follow the golden rule of travel – Don’t drink water that is not from a bottle! Some food and drink that is safe for locals could harbor parasites your body is not used to fighting.|
|Animal Attacks||Before leaving, look into the sorts of wildlife you might encounter on your trip. Learn some basic safety for dealing with any animals you might find.|
|Food Poisoning||If you are traveling to a remote location, the food you eat most likely will not be held to the same sanitation standards as what you might find in a restaurant in your hometown. Be sure your food is cooked and handled well, and avoid anything questionable.|
