An increasing number of UK citizens leave the UK on a permanent, temporary or semi- permanent basis and require expatriate health insurance:
You may be working overseas as an employee or contractor.
You may be retired or semi- retired.
You may run a business from a foreign country.
What cover do I need?
Before selecting an expatriate health insurance policy, you should consider the following:
Do you want "budget" hospital-only cover for acute conditions or "comprehensive", which includes out-patient treatments and consultations?
Decide what you can afford and what benefits you most want.
Fully understand what is not covered as well as what is.
Decide what you don't want insurance cover for? (e.g. repatriation/maternity).
Decide if you need access to a 24-hour multilingual helpine.
