For individuals living outside of their home countries, finding affordable, comprehensive health coverage can be a challenge. International health insurance plans help expatriates get the health coverage they need while living abroad.
Expat health insurance plans are highly customizable and provide the essential benefits you need to maintain peace of mind while living outside of your home country. From inpatient care to mental healthcare services, Cigna Global health insurance plans are designed to offer flexible coverage to expats across the globe.
Here’s everything you need to know about expat health insurance.
What’s the difference between expat health insurance and travel insurance?
Travel insurance offers limited coverage for individuals who live in one country but are temporarily visiting another country where their existing health coverage does not apply.
Expat health insurance is specifically designed to offer comprehensive health coverage to expats that plan to live outside of their home countries for extended periods of time. These policies ensure you have access to the same range of medical treatments you would typically have access to in your home country.
What Does Cigna Expat Health Insurance Cover?
