Pre-existing conditions Can Make Getting Insurance Difficult
International health insurance is not important at all if you are well!! Healthy!!! And won’t get sick!!! But you work overseas. What if you come down with a rare sickness? Or develop a chronic illness? Then what? You will find that there is no insurance company that will cover you on an individual plan if that happens. But you might say, “I am healthy. It will never happen to me!” If you read the e-mails that we receive from people living all over the world who have no insurance and have contracted a serious illness, you would not say that. It is amazing how some people who have been perfectly healthy all their lives are suddenly hit with a serious illness. They write to us hoping we can find some insurance for them. It is next to impossible to find insurance for a person who presently has cancer, had a recent heart attack, has become a diabetic, etc. Insurance companies won’t cover individuals with such serious preexisting conditions.
Don’t count on always being healthy! If you can’t afford a “Cadillac” insurance plan, than buy a “Chevrolet” plan. Purchase a plan with a high deductible. But please do buy some kind of insurance! Don’t count on always being healthy!!!!
