Medical Insurance

Every pilgrim should check with his/her medical insurance provider to see if they have reciprocity with Brazil. If you have nationalized medicine, find out how you will be reimbursed for any medical emergencies. If you have private health care, ask your provider if they cover you overseas and how the expenses will be paid.

 World Youth Day Insurance

World Youth Day generally provides a basic medical insurance which includes treatment during WYD and nothing more; the coverage will get you patched up and sent off.

Supplementary Insurance

Individuals may purchase travelers’ medical insurance, and should carefully read the terms of what it covers and how the bills are paid.

Prescription Medications

If you are bringing prescription medication with you to WYD, you should bring the medications in their original bottles. If you are taking a critical medication, you should try to bring a backup prescription order from your doctor in English and in Portuguese just in case you lose your medication. Everyone suffers when a group member loses his/her medicine.
