If you’re travelling with emergency medical travel insurance and submit a medical claim resulting from an unexpected sickness like chikungunya, you may be covered for treatment, subject to the terms and conditions of your policy. If you have questions about your policy before leaving, contact your travel medical insurance provider.

Safe travels,
