Dive Insurance from Melissa Rodriguez, About Scuba Diving

Dive Insurance, Who needs it?

Melissa Rodriguez, as if in answer to our recent article about a diver not having the right kind of insurance (or enough insurance)has written an article that you might find helpful. In it she reviews the various policies available.

"Your health insurance policy may not cover you, if you have a diving accident. If you are not sure about your coverage, ask your insurance company and get all promises in writing. If your insurance company does not cover you, you can get a supplemental policy specifically for diving accidents. These policies cover bills your primary health insurance will not, including deductibles. Look for coverage that meets all your needs."
