It is important to know who is covered and the dependents they have listed. Insurance plan policies for expats in particular, can be complicated as countries, conditions, and travel can affect if a plan is applicable to you. You need to know what you are covered for and how long you are covered for.

If you travel regularly and require a plan that meets your needs you will need to know where you are covered. If you have a group plan you need to know if all intended are accounted for and who is the policyholder for the plan whose name will show up on all plan documents.

Why are International Health Insurance Plan Terms Important to Read?

When you are buying any insurance policy, you are getting into a contract with the insurance contract, not us as we are not an insurance provider. We are just the broker that helps you find a policy and assist where required. The policy contract will dictate the plan terms and conditions, coverage details and much more. Failure to read and understand the coverage conditions can lead you to buy coverage that may not meet your requirements. For people wanting to retire abroad, it is vital that they make sure the policy will cover them abroad for life as an expatriate. The Cigna plan is a great choice for these expats for this very reason.
