Frontier MEDEX Travel Insurance Summary

Frontier MEDEX is a solid choice for travelers searching for medical coverage. It offers various levels of medical benefits and optional coverage for basic travel insurance items such as travel interruption, cancellation and baggage. However, for a travel insurance provider that is geared towards medical assistance, its limited pre-existing medical coverage is surprising.
