Create awareness that while ones loved ones and family and friends
travel overseas for short or long stay in an event of medical emergency it may cost thousands in medical bills. If the Insurance policy is not robust enough or in case if in country like Australia its best to have a local " Overseas Health Insurance" as certain amount of costs are covered if not in full which will help reduce the burden and in some cases see an required treatment being provided by doctors as insurance would cover the cost.

Why I am setting this campaign!

I have come across many incidents where someone's parents are visiting from overseas to Australia and require medical emergency for health or accidents. While many ensure that they are either covered from their home country(e.g. China, India or even UK)  or  a local Australian "Overseas Health Insurance Policy" many  visitors don't.  In my personal experience the policy taken locally in Australia has proved effecting than taken in host country.

Note: I am not advocating for any insurance company or product but ensuring that people are aware as Car insurances "Overseas Health Cover" for short or long visits is equally important. Also note that Overseas Health cover may be very different from travel insurance in case by case basis.
