FAQ

Scope of insurance packages and additional coverage

  • Medical expenses – what do they include?

    They include the organisation and coverage of necessary medical expenses and providing emergency medical aid by the Insurer in case of a sudden illness or accident while travelling. Under such insurance the Insurer covers among others the costs of medical appointments, exams, operations, hospitalization, as well as purchase of medication or dressings, if needed in connection with an injury or illness. The insurance also covers the reimbursement for medical rescue costs, e.g. helicopter or ambulance transport, and even costs of dental treatment or repair of glasses. It also covers assistance in cases of bodily injury or death as a result of a terrorist attack.

    The insurance also covers losses resulting from participating in recreational sports, such as cross-country skiing, cycling, running, beach volley-ball. But it does not cover losses resulting from participating in more risky sports (e.g. skiing, diving). In such cases one should buy extreme sports coverage

    Moreover, the Insurer will organise transport after the completion of treatment to the place of lodging. If while travelling you need an interpreter in your contacts with the doctor, have to return to Poland due to a sudden illness of your relative or require a lawyer's assistance, you can count on the Insurer's help.

Other question

    The EHIC covers medical expenses only at medical facilities which have an agreement signed with the counterpart of our National Health Fund (NFZ), upon the principles in a particular country (e.g. it may be necessary to make a partial co-payment for the services) and only within the European Union.

    Very often insurance provided by tour operators for particular tours has low sums insured and narrow insurance coverage. This means that in the event of a sickness or an accident the sum insured is not sufficient to cover all the costs, or perhaps the event in question will not even be covered by the insurance at all.

    It is important to have the policy number and the particulars of the insured persons. All this information will be found in Bank Millennium’s mobile app and on Millenet.
