If you’ve already purchased insurance take a very close look at your policy or call them to determine whether this may affect coverage.
Due to these government travel advisories, an insurance company may deny any claims for injury or illness while in the affected areas, even if unrelated to the travel advisory reason. It’s best not to take the risk and find a company that will provide coverage regardless of the advisory.
I called my insurance company to find out what kind of coverage I can expect and was told that it would be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and it’s likely they won’t cover expenses incurred while I’m in an area with a travel advisory, such as the Copper Canyon. As a result, I’ve found alternative coverage for when I travel in that region.
