Professional mariners have a unique set of insurance needs that includes coverage on and off board the vessel, security and flexibility that protects them anywhere in the world. 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.

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.
Many short term plans also offer a host of additional benefits like medical evacuation, repatriation, accidental death benefit, common carrier accident benefit.
