Who Should Buy Global Medical Insurance for Expatriates?

Top insurance companies design this kind of global medical insurance to cater to the needs of people who intend to travel overseas and stay for extended periods. This kind of insurance will help pay for clinics, hospitals, doctors, and prescriptions, but it isn’t usually intended to cover pre-existing conditions. Some companies offer plans that cater to the needs of people who have certain medical conditions they need to manage.

In addition to having medical needs covered in case of an illness or injury, you may find plans with other benefits that travelers can use. For instance, the top companies usually offer a medical concierge service that will direct you to quality medical facilities nearby and even help you save money within their global networks. They may also offer protection in case you need a medical or other emergency evacuation, lose your baggage or travel documents, and more.

Note that these plans aren’t design to comply with U.S. ACA requirements. If you’re a U.S. national, you may be exempt from ACA rules when you travel overseas for extended periods.

As part of our service, we also strive to explain products and answer questions right here on this website. Still, we must offer a disclaimer for our travel medical insurance and other travel insurance guides. As with any insurance, you must read the insurance company's brochures and policy or certificate before making a purchase. The insurance company's documents explain policy features, benefits, exclusions, limitations, claims handling, and other critical details. If you ever find a conflict between our website's wording and information from the insurance company, the insurance company's documents take precedence and represent your legal contract.
