International insurance seekers generally opt for the medical evacuation insurance which would enable them to be transported to their home country (or nearest adequate medical facility) in the event of medical help or treatment.

While finalizing the international health insurance plan, one needs to be very careful about the actual benefits offered by the policy as it varies between different insurance providers.

  • Some plans cover only evacuation and exclude repatriation
  • Some plans will cover the costs for an adult to accompany the injured or sick during the evacuation
  • Other plans can cover the costs for the entire family to accompany the patien
  • It is advisable to choose a provider with good experience in addressing emergency situations. Look for references or testimonials by clients who have used the service earlier.
