Why do I need expatriate health insurance?

The quality of healthcare can vary widely around the world. The quality of care in your new country may not be to the standard you were used to back home. Also, as a foreign national, you and your family will not likely be entitled to any free or subsidized healthcare. It is therefore important to consider an expatriate health plan to provide for the healthcare needs of you and your family.


What does expatriate health insurance cover?

Start with a core insurance policy. It can provide you protection for essential hospital stays and treatment. Surgeon and consultation fees as well as hospital accommodation are covered. Inpatient, outpatient and cancer treatments are also provided for. In addition, you may add riders that offer levels of coverage for routine maternity to your core policy. You can additionally tailor your policy with a range of optional benefits. International outpatient provides you with more extensive outpatient coverage including doctors’ visits and prescriptions. In addition you can add medical evacuation, health & well-being and vision & dental benefits to your policy.
