Do I really need dive accident insurance?
I have primary medical coverage
Your primary medical insurance may exclude scuba diving as a
hazardous recreational activity and/or may not provide coverage
when you are traveling out of the country. If it does provide
coverage, it may pay only a minimal amount for chamber treatments. There are also often large out-of-pocket payments for deductibles and co-pays. These alone can total thousands of dollars.
The DAN Dive Accident Insurance Plans are recognized worldwide and can be confirmed 24 hours a day through the DAN Emergency Hotline (+1-919-684-9111). The DAN plans provide secondary coverage of up to $500,000 and pay
100% of eligible expenses.
