The Good: Annual international major medical health insurance for a traveler’s global living needs. Choose your deductible, prescription drug level, and network providers. Available to all legal residents of the U.S. (citizens and foreign nationals) age 74 and younger, as well as their spouse and children.
The Drawbacks: Emergency evacuations and repatriation not available inside the U.S. or out-of-network. Pre-existing medical conditions are not covered until after a six-month waiting period. No coverage for maternity and newborn care.
The Bottom Line: Comprehensive major medical insurance for emergency medical, preventative medical care, prescription and dental coverage for global citizens. This plan can be a group employer-sponsored plan if the insured is an employee of a U.S. company and domiciled in an approved state.
