Employees thinking of relocating abroad might find expatriate medical insurance is vital because their health can suffer as a result of the new lifestyle, research has found.
According to HR Magazine, a survey has found that more than two in five (44 per cent) expats believe healthcare abroad is not of the same standard as in their home country, while one in five claims that their health levels have deteriorated since moving abroad.
Singapore topped the list of countries that overseas health insurance policyholders would choose to be treated in, with 23 per cent of respondents opting for the city-state.
This was followed by South Africa (ten per cent) and the UK (ten per cent).
Sneh Khemka, who was involved in the research, commented that it is interesting to see Singapore with a good reputation for healthcare among expatriates, because the quality of medical care there can vary as it does in other countries.
"Therefore, it's very important to have access to expert medical advice when living abroad to be sure that you are going to be directed to the most appropriate facilities, whichever country you're in."
Meanwhile, research from the Economist Intelligence Unit revealed that four in ten international companies are planning to increase their number of expatriate staff within the next five years.
