Don't leave home without......coverage!

It is always a good idea to review your insurance policies-car and health; to make sure everything is current and you have the appropriate coverage.  It is especially important to do so before you leave for an unaccompanied tour.  Have you signed all the papers needed?  Are the amounts correct?  Do you understand your deductible?  Does your spouse need a power of attorney?  If your spouse is in a foreign safe haven will your health insurance still be in effect? 

Know the amount that will be deducted from your paycheck -confirm that amount is being deducted and coverage is in effect.  Remember it is your responsibility to make sure everything is correct.  Ask questions!  Write down contact information!  Find out now everything is good order, don't wait until it too late!
