International Medical Insurance

Hello guys, if I wanted to go over seas, what company do you guys recommend when it comes to health/medical insurance? Although, may cover by credit card but never know, always have to protect yourself at all cost. Can't be too sure on what it will cover and how much will it cover. Thanks!

Are you talking as an expat? Or while traveling? 

 

This has been a topic of recent interest after my DBF's mother was hospitalized in Ireland and needed help to get back as well as one of our friends whose parents were travelling on vacation in Peru when his father died unexpectedly and now is trying to get both of them repatriated. 

 

 

For traveling I've used United HealthCare's product: https://www.uhcsafetrip.com/ which was easy enough to sign up for. I've had UHC for insurance in the past and liked their customer service, so assumed it would be similar in caliber. 

 

More recently I have also read about WorldNomads (https://www.worldnomads.com/) on a few blogs regarding long term round the world travel, as well as IMG Patriot (better for a family plan, https://www.imglobal.com/).

 

Whatever you choose, just make sure if they are providing primary or secondary coverage (kind of like rental cars).
