Tourist Insurance

 

If you are a tourist and have a medical emergency in Panama, you will be covered by a 30-day free health insurance.

In Panama we will take care of you as if you were at home. You will have coverage for hospitalization and medical expenses for injuries resulting from an accident or by disease contracted on Panamanian territory up to $7,000. 

In the event of a medical emergency, all you will have to do is show your passport upon arrival at the hospital. The medical emergency will be covered by Axa Assistance, in partnership with Generali, if the emergency occurs within the first 30 days after arrival in the country.

For more information or immediate assistance, call: 204-9300/800-2312
