If you are planning a trip abroad you must definitely purchase International Medical Insurance to cover you in case you fall sick or injure yourself abroad. Your health insurance from your home country will not cover you in foreign countries.
If you are travelling for a few days or months, you can consider Short Term Travel Medical Insurance Plans. They can cover you outside your home country. The Travel Medical plans typically cover doctor visits, hospitalization and surgery. They do not offer cover for preventive care or maternity. Applying for the plans is simple and medical tests are not needed.
If you are planning to move to another and live there for extended periods of time the Long Term International Health Insurance plans or Global Plans may be more suitable. They can also cover you on your trips back to your home country. These plans can cover preventive care and maternity along with other sicknesses and injuries. Results of medical tests may be needed during the application process.
