Columbus Insurances: reviews

From our direct experience with Columbus Assicurazioni during a trip to the USA a few years ago, we can confirm that in case of health problems, by calling the assistance line you can speak directly with a doctor who will advise you on what to do.

In the case of small expenses such as doctor’s visits and the purchase of medicines, you will have to pay in advance (remember that pharmacies abroad without a doctor’s prescription will not reimburse you for anything), which you will be reimbursed for later.
