Do I need Expat Health Insurance?
The cost of doctors’ visits, medicines and medical tests can add up very quickly, especially if you are an expat living in another country and are not covered under the country’s health insurance plan. Being an expat brings along with it, its own set of challenges; your health should not be one. This is where Health Insurance steps in, so that one can have access to the best healthcare without fearing the financial strain. Guaranteeing you and your loved ones, the peace of mind everyone deserves.
If you are an individual who travels frequently, an international policy can provide you with extensive health cover even when you are abroad. You may have travel insurance in place, but bear in mind these policies are designed only for short visits and to cover for emergencies.
Individual private medical insurance (IPMI) policies are tailor made to fit the needs of expats, as they take into account factors such as how pre-existing conditions are handled and if there are any age restrictions.
Even if you are eligible for subsidized medical cover, most public healthcare policies are not all-inclusive which means there are gaps in the coverage and certain treatments might not be covered. An expat policy gives you thorough access to the finest healthcare amenities in the country.
