International health insurance policies provide medical coverage abroad. Unlike the majority of travel insurance plans, international health insurance provides coverage for pre-exiting conditions, preventative care, chronic conditions and more. Unfortunately, many people do not realize that these benefits are not typically found in travel insurance policies until they need to make a claim and are told they don’t have the right coverage.
A common misconception is that domestic coverage is enough when traveling abroad. However, even if you have coverage in your home country, that coverage is unlikely to apply overseas. This makes international health insurance a necessity for anyone who needs medical coverage while traveling abroad for 12 months or more. If you’re abroad needing a policy that’s renewable and covers chronic conditions, pre-existing conditions, preventative care, or other types of medical care—international health insurance is right for you.
Many international health insurance policies provide worldwide coverage, including the U.S. If something happens while you’re abroad and you would prefer to receive medical attention in the U.S., you may return to the United States and get treatment just as you would with a domestic health insurance policy.
