Allen required emergency surgery to remove his appendix. Allen and his wife Doris were enjoying their getaway, when suddenly Allen felt a sharp pain in his abdomen. The pain became worse, so Allen saw a local doctor and was promptly transferred to the local hospital. Doctors diagnosed him with appendicitis and scheduled him for urgent surgery. Doris called their travel insurance provider and spoke to their dedicated medical team about Allen’s care. The couple’s travel insurance helped cover the cost of Allen’s surgery as well as the cost of cancelling the rest of their trip.
