Insurance Included In Price Of Ticket To Cuba

Travelers to Cuba get something extra with the cost of their tickets —
health insurance.
Cuba doesn’t accept American health insurance, so airlines purchase
policies for travelers.
A note on United Airlines’ website says about $25 per person covers 30
days on the island. Southwest tells passengers to hold onto their
boarding passes as proof of insurance.

Suzanne Carlson, owner of Carlson Maritime , says some policies
cover up to $25,000 in expenses from illness and $7,000 from injuries.

“But remember the medical premiums and medical prices in Cuba aren’t the
same as they are in the United States,” Carlson said. “So a $7,000
payment in Cuba might equate to be $1 million here.”

Insurance hasn’t increased the price of a ticket yet, but Carlson says
ticket prices will rise as flights become established.
