International Health Insurance

Health insurance can help offset medical costs and ensure you get access to the medical care you need when you need it. But for foreigners living in the United States and expats moving abroad, standard health insurance may not be an option.

With an international health insurance policy, individuals living abroad can get the customizable health coverage they need to meet their needs. Cigna International Health Plans are comprehensive, flexible, and provide coverage for inpatient and day-patient care with the option to add outpatient care and other elective modules.

Here’s everything you need to know about international health insurance.

What is International Health Insurance?

International health insurance is health coverage designed specifically for individuals moving to the United States from another country and US citizens moving abroad for more than six months.

With international health insurance, you can get access to the medical care and services you need if you don’t have access to traditional health insurance options. With Cigna Global health insurance plans, you get access to the company’s global network of trusted hospitals, doctors, and other healthcare professionals.

International health insurance plans can be customized to meet your financial and coverage needs.

Who Needs International Health Insurance?

International health insurance is a great option for any individual that is moving to a country other than their home country and will live there for over six months. International health policies provide robust coverage to individuals who will stay in a foreign country long-term.

For example, international health insurance can be a great solution for individuals relocating to the United States who need health coverage while they navigate the immigration process and wait to become United States citizens.
