Korea Tourism Organization introduced Medical Tourism Insurance


(media1=Howard JC) Korea Tourism Organization has launched a new medical tourism insurance and assistance service specifically designed for international tourists in collaboration with Dongbu Insurance.

The insurance offers compensation for medical bills that come with any accidents leading to injury or even death that occur while traveling in Korea, the cost of the first seven days of a stay in a hospital, and offers financial services for an unplanned extension of stay due to a medical dispute. The insurance also provides interpretation services to facilitate communication between doctor and patient, as well as resolve any medical disputes that may arise.

Starting in April, 2015, the first 5000 people to sign up will receive travel health insurance for free. Please visit the official medical tourism platform for more detailed information.
