Health Insurance Worldwide

One of people’s major concerns when travelling worldwide is health insurance and making sure that they will be able to have access to healthcare and treatment while on their travels.


While many insurance companies will have affordable and competitive health insurance quotes they can offer you, you will need to carefully consider a number of points.


The first, and perhaps most obvious, point to make is that each country in the world has a unique culture, history and medical infrastructure. You will need to do a little bit of research about the countries you are planning to visit. Some of the many countries you visit will have public healthcare systems such as the NHS, while others will have purely private systems.


To get the best deal you will need to compare different medical insurance quotes, not just in terms of price but also in terms of content, from different providers. The table on this page makes this task easy by listing provider’s deals.

If you are travelling within Europe you will want to get a European Health Insurance Card, which you will enable you to obtain:

 

  • Medical treatment that is needed for accidents or illnesses in Europe
  • Treatment for long term illnesses if you should so require


Trying to get health insurance worldwide may be a tougher, but as long as you know what your requirements are, and are honest with giving your medical details you should be able to get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are covered.


Some important things to note about the differences between worldwide health insurance quotes are:

 

  • Are there restrictions in the amount of benefits or the extent of cover offered, for example are you only covered for emergencies overseas?
  • Are you guaranteed your own private room or treatment in a private facility?
  • Will you need to get a referral from a doctor before becoming insured for treatment?
  • What is the level of excess and can it be reduced or increased voluntarily?
