“What happens if I have an accident overseas?”


International Sports Accident Cover explained by Shahrom Abdullah

Shahrom Abdullah is an athlete and adventurer. He travels all across the world to compete and pushes his limits like no one else.

After a successful career as an elite triathlete, Shahrom decided to turn his attention to adventure racing and other superhuman feats.

In January 2016, Shahrom became the first Malaysian to conquer the South Pole, trekking and skiing for 37 days. It normally takes most other people 50 to 60 days. His only injury?

“I got a bit of frostbite on my right cheek. I had to rub some hot water on it,” he says.

Talk about tough!

But when it comes to preparation, Shahrom is extra careful.

That’s why he is with Re-Claim.

He knows that if something goes wrong overseas, he has the necessary protection to support his family.

With Re-Claim’s international sports accident cover, if you have an accident overseas which requires emergency evacuation, you will receive helicopter and medical evacuation from the site of the accident, as well as hospital cover and repatriation and transport to the nearest hospital or back home to Malaysia, whichever is appropriate.

What’s more, if you require treatment overseas, you can undergo surgery abroad without worrying about additional costs. We work with your other insurances and pay when your standard medical cover stops paying.

“I can compete and travel overseas for sporting adventures without out having to worry about what would happen if I have an accident,” says Shahrom


On top of that, Re-Claim international sports accident cover not only covers you for overseas treatment as a result of an accident in another country, but we’ll also cover you for treatment overseas if it is recommended by the attending doctor in Malaysia that you be transferred to a hospital outside of Malaysia for specialist treatment.

All you need to do is prove that the treatment, assistance or aid required overseas is not possible in Malaysia.

We will review and approve the necessity of the overseas treatment and top up or pay the full amount of your medical bill.
