We all want to get away sometime, right? Whether you are in San Antonio, Texas, or Playa Vista, California, the appeal of a trip overseas to somewhere exotic such as Greece or Oman can be enticing for sure. But what happens if your dream getaway turns into a nightmare, with sickness and foreign medical services you are not used to, maybe even a language barrier? Well, that is why we always recommend to add an international travel health insurance policy to your trip, before you go! Essentially, its intended purpose is to protect you in the event of an illness or injury when travelling outside of your country of residence, along with things outside of our control like lost luggage, trip interruptions, and more. Travelling abroad is an exciting experience, but unpredictable illnesses and accidents can happen. Even worse, the resulting medical bills can be overwhelming. The level of international medical coverage provided by your domestic insurance provider can vary greatly depending on your plan, so you may have very limited coverage or no coverage at all.
International Resident Health Insurance
International resident health insurance is beneficial because it can provide long-term coverage to people that live or work outside of their home country, which typically can be for a duration of one year or sometimes longer. These kinds of plans are suited best for expats and their families, individuals with dual residences, multinational employers, and more.
