Dive insurance provide a a generous Coverage and benefit for emergency evacuation and hyperbaric chamber treatments. You will be happy to have this specific insurance to provide fast & professional medical supports and the cost coverages.
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. If it covers scuba diving, it may pay only a minimal amount for chamber treatment. Many policies may not cover you when you are out of your region or out of the country.
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW：
Nowadays, some travel insurance has "included" scuba diving coverage. But they might don't have the local network properly set diving medical supports to help you in "bad events", and many of the travel insurance has 30 m depth limit policies, which is not always enough. Even if you don't plan to go deeper than 30 m there is always a chance you may overshoot, or circumstances dictate that you go deeper. This is the reason we recommend our divers to subscribe to a REAL Dive Insurance.
