Ripcord reimburses client for medical expenses after foot injury in Germany

Posted on Posted in Reimbursement, Travel Insurance

River cruise from Prague to Berlin

A Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance client was in the middle of a river cruise through Central Europe, admiring the castles and historic synagogues of the Czech Republic and strolling along the cobblestone streets of Germany when she slipped and fell, injuring her foot. She was unable to walk on it without a lot of pain.

Redpoint Operations staff arranged for her to be admitted to and evaluated at a hospital in Dresden, where she was taken in a taxi. Fortunately, there were no fractures, only a soft tissue injury, so doctors were able to fit her with a walking boot. She was able to continue her Elbe River cruise toward Berlin.

As a Ripcord comprehensive travel insurance policyholder, she submitted a claim for the medical expenses incurred at the Dresden hospital, and Ripcord reimbursed her the full amount.
