The number of people contacting us for insurance after becoming pregnant, or developing cancer or having a heart-attack might astound you. And unfortunately we never have good news for these folks. No insurance company will insure a person that is in the midst of receiving costly medical treatments.
Why does this happen? Some people, especially young people (and especially young men) just don’t think they will ever have a medical problem. Others are just too busy. They plan to get international health insurance but just haven’t got around to it. But the major reason is finances. But your international insurance premium doesn’t have to be expensive!
Insurance can be expensive, especially if you purchase a cadillac plan. If you can’t afford that kind of plan, go for a scaled back plan. The benefits in a scaled back plan are still very good and the cost savings are significant. The monthly premium ($1000 deductible) for a 45 year old female on our most expensive plan is $626 while on a budget plan the monthly premium is $106. To be sure, that cadillac plan is better than the budget plan but not six times better. And the $106 per month can be decreased to $80 if coverage in the USA is excluded. Health insurance is affordable.
