Globalization has increased international trips and encouraged relocation. Although medical insurance has been available previously, the expenses were sky-high whenever you engaged in any medical treatments outside of your home country. Sometimes, the payment was demanded upfront.
But now you can acquire medical insurance that would protect you once you depart from your home country. This is in effect from 15 days to 12 months, depending on the policy you enrolled in. You can choose from a policy that has coverage from $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, $500,000, and even $1,000,000 up. Basic coverage includes routine medical check-ups, dental visits, and surgery. There are no medical exams necessary and no age limit for making use of international medical insurance. The only requirement is your passport.
You can buy policies that include emergency medical evacuation. If you need immediate attention or need to be transferred to another medical facility, this policy will keep you covered. If you were in a foreign country and after getting treatment there, then were sent back home to receive more extensive care, this policy also takes care of that. Insurance that provides emergency medical evacuation keeps you insured for a maximum of $100,000 in expenses.
When you fall ill and your condition merits further care from your family members, then an emergency reunion policy will take care of the expenses incurred from lodging and traveling. You can receive as much as $10,000 in coverage.
If you fell ill and passed away while you were in another country, having a repatriation of remains expense policy can cover all the expenses involved in bringing your remains back to your home country. It can cover up to a maximum of $20,000 of travel expenses.
