7. Spending extended time abroad
Many people choose to live abroad for extended periods of time. Sometimes it is for work, or travel, or school. Either way, you need medical insurance that will cover you overseas. You have insurance at home, and it is just as important to have it in a foreign country.
People who need travel medical insurance:
- students attending school abroad
- employees working in overseas locations
- those taking an extended vacation and living abroad
Travel medical insurance can be purchased for periods of time from 5 days and up to 3 years. It provides medical expense coverage as well as medical evacuation coverage. Many plans also offer 24/7 phone support, which will help get beyond language issues in foreign countries and get the help you need.
