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.
