You’re working overseas for a business or nonprofit organization and are going to be moving overseas for a year or more. You need an international expat health insurance policy for yourself or your family. You want your family to have proper coverage without overspending, but there are so many plans and options that it’s hard to be sure which plan is the best fit for you.
Here are some important factors to consider as you choose your plan:
- You will initially have to go through underwriting for these plans, but the coverage is significantly more comprehensive than travel plans.
- Your location matters because some plans offer better networks or rates in certain areas of the world.
- The amount of time you will be spending in the U.S. each year.
- Some carriers may offer plans that are a better fit for your age, health condition or family size. For example, there are special plans for seniors, plans that cover pre-existing conditions, and plans that are a better fit for small or large families.
- Some plans offer better maternity or adoption benefits than others.
- If you need other types of benefits, such as life insurance or crisis response, certain carriers may be a better fit for you.
Scroll down to see the different plan options or contact us to help you find the right plan. If going overseas for a year or less, consider a personal travel plan for the best rate..
