Whether it’s a quick trip across the border or a family vacation, unexpected illness, injury and personal emergencies are not planned—they just happen! It’s important to go with confidence knowing your insurance provides coverage inside and out of the country. Getting proper medical attention can be difficult when you are not familiar with your surroundings. Not being able to speak the local language can compound this problem. The Empire Life Travel Emergency Assistance Program is here to help.
