They found the right health policy for my family and were very understanding of our particular needs and the requirements we had regarding our overseas cover needs. Response to questions was always good, quick and helpful.

What is International Health Insurance?

International health insurance is not always the first thing on your mind when you are planning a move abroad, it is however an important thing to consider. The cost of healthcare abroad can be extremely expensive and without a comprehensive expatriate health plan in place, you may find that you are out of pocket if you require any medical treatment. Consider what would happen if you were working abroad and required an emergency procedure or needed to visit the doctor. Without overseas health insurance, you may be liable for any expenses related to the treatment you received. A worldwide medical plan will give you peace of mind and confidence that your health and wellbeing are covered when living and working in a foreign country.

People often believe that standard travel insurance will cover them when they are abroad, but this is not always the case. Travel insurance is designed to give holidaymakers cover for medical emergencies and travel specific incidents. The medical cover limits are therefore often lower and trips are usually limited to a certain amount of time, meaning they are not appropriate for long term expats. International health insurance is specifically designed for those living in a foreign country.

Cigna Global Health Options specialise in providing expatriate health plans that are designed to give comprehensive overseas medical cover for people who are living and working abroad. Our core International Medical Insurance  plans give you and your family cover for essential hospital stays and treatment, cancer and psychiatric care . Maternity cover is also included in our Gold and Platinum plans. Our core plans can then be supplemented with a range of optional benefits which include International Outpatient, designed to cover outpatient treatment and prescriptions. Cigna Global Health Options also offer International Medical Evacuation, International Vision & Dental and International Health & Wellbeing - optional benefits that can be added to your core plan.
