Considerations for Choosing Global Healthcare in Expat Regions & Countries
If you are moving abroad, it is important to choose a global health plan that will cover you both in your new destination, but also in the region and back home as well. If you are an American expat, then it is a good idea to include the USA coverage option that most insurers offer. You have to remember that expat life means that you are probably going to be moving from one country or region to another. You have to consider if the hospitals in that new country are up to modern standards. Additionally, you have to find out if your plan will cover you there via their medical network. Most expat health plans will allow for free choice of medical doctors and hospitals but are more convenient to use the insurer’s network.
