Anyone have "global" health insurance through Assura?

Are there any Assura customers who might know if the Mondia and/or Aventura products provide global coverage or coverage only in the EU/AELE area? I'm planning a trip to the far east and possibly another to the US and I'm not quite sure if I'll have any health cover. Google Transglish isn't helping much.

Re: Anyone have "global" health insurance through Assura?

I desperately tried for 3 months to get a quotation from Assura with no chance, they kept promising that I'd receive an offer by email/surface mail/phone call etc.... I decided at the end to give up and go for Groupe Mutuel "Mundo" coverage (it's 60chf/year i nthink on average)

Assura called me after 4 months if they should send consultant to sign for the worldwide coverage.......

I don't know to be honest.

But if you are worried about it, what about joining up with Rega - seems quite cheap for a year's subscription. After all, to my mind the main issue is always about getting you back to CH. Once there you can get whatever treatment you need under your insurance...

You can become a Rega patron by paying the following minimum contributions:
Fr. 30.-- per person
Fr. 70.-- per family (parents and children under the age of 18 on the day of payment)
Fr. 40.-- for one-parent families (single parents and children under the age of 18 on the day of payment)

I'm with ASSURA and I have the Mondia insurance too. This is a travel insurance valid for the whole world (world = mondo (Italian), mundo (Spanish), etc.).
