What is international health care?
Expatriate health plans are for people living abroad who need global private health care and are living abroad for at least 12 month or more. If you are going abroad for less than 12 months, then it makes more sense to get a travel medical insurance plan.
What does it provide?
Most plans provide in-patient or what is known as hospital coverage. Then you can add out-patient cover – such as seeing your MD or specialist, drug coverage, x-rays and scans. Some plans offer maternity care after a 12 month waiting period. Evacuation cover is either included or can be added for an extra fee. Some plans will offer optional vision and dental benefits.
What to look for in an expat health care plan?
It is vital that you get an expat health plan from a well-known and respected health insurer which will be there when you need it. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, it is vital that you see if you can have it underwritten and covered. Some plans simply exclude pre-existing conditions.
There are two main plans – a plan that covers you global including OR excluding the United States. If you are a US citizen, reside near the USA or want to be able to seek treatment there, then you should make sure you get a plan which covers treatment in the USA. Having cover for the USA will increase your premiums significantly because of the high cost of medical treatment there.
The premiums you pay are dependent on variety of factors: Age, Gender, Country of Residence, Deductible, Coverage Levels, Medical Status and several others.
