If you are planning to move abroad for a few years or planning to go on a trip abroad for a few months, The State Department suggests you purchase International Medical insurance to cover you. Your domestic health insurance, including Medicare may offer limited to no coverage when you are abroad.
We offer 2 types of International Medical Insurance plans: Short Term Insurance (from 5 days to 3 years) covers you outside your home country for doctor visits, hospitalization, prescriptions and medical evacuation.
Long Term Insurance (Renewable Annually) offers global coverage including the home country. Plans can cover maternity, pre existing conditions (with a waiting period), preventive and dental care along with other benefits.
Short Term Insurance plans focus on providing coverage for medical expenses due to sudden illness or injury on your trip. Most International Medical Insurance plans are available for 12 months and some can be renewed up to 36 months. They do not provide preventive care and coverage for pre existing conditions. Coverage can start immediately and medical tests and reports are not needed.
Many of International Medical Insurance plans also offer a host of additional benefits like Medical evacaution, Repatriation, Accidental Death benefit, Common Carrier Accident benefit. Coverage is available from $50,000 to $1Million. Travellers visiting the US and US Citizens traveling abroad can purchase these International Medical Insurance plans designed and administered by US based companies with extensive international healthcare experience.
