Expat Healthcare Insurance

For many people who have to work long term in a country other than that of their own nationality, or have retired to a different culture and climate, one of the major obstacles to be organised is that of insurance. For natives of the United Kingdom, insurance is for the most part an option on top of the basic benefits which are provided as part of the welfare state, however in many countries it is necessary to take out some form of insurance policy, whether it is from a public or private organisation.

This can lead to much confusion for many an expat who is used to Britain, but in moving possibly to the US they will be confronted with a bewildering array of companies, policies, terms, conditions and exclusions that it could make their heads spin.

This is why several companies have now started to specialise in insurance for expat, aim specifically at nationals of the same company living overseas, in order that they do not have to go through any complicated procedures to which they are unaccustomed. These companies are have representative offices, or affiliated companies across the world, with fluent English speakers on hand at all times in case of emergencies.

Of course no form of insurance can be 100% inclusive and there are often, it must be said rather obvious, exclusions. However these are largely extreme cases such as current war zones, and other locations where hostilities are deemed likely to break out. But these are largely exceptional, and expatriate health insurance covers most medical issues in most countries in the world, and can often be quite cheaper than those offered in the country moved to.
