The Good: A worldwide health insurance plan for emergency medical and preventative care individuals and families – the â€˜EXPâ€™ in the title stands for â€˜expatâ€™. Optional prescription drug benefits and global travel benefits included, as well as maternity benefits (after a 12-month waiting period). This plan ensures that you have ready access to quality health care no matter where in the world you roam.
The Drawbacks: Only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents up to age 74. Coverage not available to residents of all states.
The Bottom Line: International major medical coverage for world travelers who are covered by a domestic U.S. health insurance plan or for those with no immediate plans to return to the U.S. This annual plan can also be a group employer-sponsored plan for employees of U.S. companies domiciled in an approved state.
