Expatriate Healthcare Insurance
Expatriate health insurance is designed for those who are living and working abroad. It is designed to give you and your family access to the best healthcare possible, wherever you are in the world.
When you need treatment, call the Cigna Customer Care Team. You will receive help arranging your treatment plan, and pointing you in the right direction, saving you the time and the hassle of looking for a hospital, clinic or medical practitioner yourself. This Crown Recommended Partner appreciates that there will be times when it will not be practical or possible for a beneficiary to contact for prior approval (for example, emergencies, or when a family member is suddenly sick, and the priority is to get treatment for them as soon as possible). In circumstances like these, Cigna asks that you or the affected beneficiary get in touch within 48 hours after treatment has been sought, so that this Crown Recommended Partner can confirm whether treatment is covered and arrange settlement with your provider.
The quality of healthcare can vary widely around the world. The quality of care in your new country may not be to the standard you were used to back home. Also, as a foreign national, you and your family will not likely be entitled to any free or subsidised healthcare. It is therefore important to consider an expatriate health plan to provide for the healthcare needs of you and your family.
A Cigna expat health insurance policy is flexible to your needs. Start with one of the core insurance policies. These provide you protection for essential hospital stays and treatment. Surgeon and consultation fees as well as hospital accommodation are covered. In-patient, outpatient and cancer treatments are also provided for. In addition, this Crown Recommended Partners Gold and Platinum core policies offer levels of cover for routine maternity.
You can tailor your policy with a range of optional benefits. International Outpatient provides you with more extensive outpatient cover including doctor’s visits and prescriptions. In addition, you can add medical evacuation, health and wellbeing and vision and dental benefits to your policy.
The cost of health insurance will vary by plan and insurer. Some insurers might offer you cheap plans, but the cover they provide may be significantly less. At Cigna they work hard to ensure that they keep levels of cover high and prices down. The plans are flexible and tailored to you and get a free no obligation quote as soon as today.
