Why Do I Need Diving Accident Insurance?
It is recommended that you get diving insurance, because, even though scuba diving is considered a safe activity, in the unfortunate event of a diving accident, insurance payouts can run into hundreds of thousands of US dollars. Medical treatment in some destinations, and specifically diving related medical treatment, or medical evacuation, can be very expensive. An uninsured person will need to pay out of pocket, sometimes upfront, and that could be a problem for the most of us.
While your diving accident policy will pay the diving related medical costs such as hyperbaric chamber treatments, you may incur many other expenses or lose some or all of your trip investment through scenarios such as non-diving medical situations, cancellation and interruption due to many reasons like inclement weather, personal or family issues, airlines delay and many other reasons. A travel insurance policy will protect you against such unforeseen scenarios.
Different insurance policies have different terms and conditions and coverage levels, so reading the fine print of each program is essential. While price is important, the scope of coverage of policies can be dramatically different. Here are some important points you should look into when comparing dive travel insurance plans:
Expertise in diving related emergencies and hyperbaric medical procedures.
Primary Vs. secondary coverage. Primary coverage includes admission guarantees, fast claims process and much more.
Direct payment to treating facility vs. reimbursement.
Scope of coverage.
Reasons for cancellation/interruption, and coverage limits.
Reasons for lost activity (diving) days.
Loss/replacement of diving gear.

Just had to drop a note tell you how well the Diveassure medical assistance program works! 50 minutes after arriving in Belize, my wife severely broke her arm. I emailed DiveAssure from an Internet Cafe and explained I was a member, that I lost my card and the situation with my wife. DiveAssure called and said everything was covered. They arranged for a flight the next day. I have never really planned to use the services that you buy insurance for, but this was money extremely well spent. To coin a phrase: DiveAssure – don’t leave home without it!!!
