So, if you find out that your company scheme isn’t all that you hoped , what then? Or it may be that you’ve got to make your own provision. As an expat then your only real option is an international health insurance policy.
An international health policy pays medical expenses irrespective of where you’re living. There can be geographic restrictions especially when it comes to the USA. If you can’t get the best treatment where you live then you can choose to get it in another country. Traveling overseas and you get hospitalised an international policy takes care of it. If you use a local policy then you won’t be so fortunate.
A local policy means that you’ll have to get treated where you live. Even if that means you don’t have the best treatment options available to you. If you want to go back home and get treatment closer to your family, then that won’t be available. When you move to another country you’ll need a new policy. If you’ve had treatment then you’re looking at a pre-existing condition.
That’s why an international health policy is your only option. It gives you choices and the continuity that every expat needs.
