Key Health Insurance Features
When you’re living or working overseas you need the best international health insurance, which is why our international healthcare is available to purchase easily online. Since 1997 we have been safeguarding expats, allowing us to offer the best policy features for you.
Medical expenses are the costs to treat or prevent an injury or disease. When not covered with international healthcare insurance these costs can be extortionate.
To prevent you from these excessive expenses, one of the main features of Expatriate Group insurance plans is medical expenses. All three of our plans cover outpatient and GP services and any hospitilisation costs.
Your health and well-being, and that of those you love and value, is of paramount importance. Expatriate Group is committed to keeping you all healthy by providing regular health checks and tests. These include vaccinations, annual medical check-ups, and cervical smears.
We even provide for prostate cancer screening and mammograms for the over 45’s
Your general health and well-being also extends to your dental health. Good dental health requires regular and routine check-ups and resulting restorative treatment can be costly.
We provide you with cover for routine check-ups and treatment. Plus, in the event of further treatment being required, both basic and major restorative treatment.
Changes to your eyesight are inevitable. That’s why Expatriate Group provide a benefit covering the cost of an annual eye examination for each person insured under the policy.
Where there is a change to your prescription we will also cover you for the cost of prescription lenses (including standard contact lenses).
We know that when you are expecting a baby, you need to feel confident that appropriate care is available.
Once you have been covered by the policy continuously for 12 months, if you become pregnant, we provide for your antenatal appointments in the run up to the big day and for the delivery itself. And to get you back on your feet in those early days, we also allow for home nursing for 5 days after home delivery.
Medicine / Therapies
Should you be prescribed complementary treatment, we cover chiropractic help, osteopathy, homeopathy, and acupuncture.
We know how important complementary medicine and therapies can be, particularly when an illness or injury is ongoing, so we extend our cover to ensure expats are as comfortable as possible.
Complementary treatment or medicine must always be provided by a registered and qualified osteopath, chiropractor, homeopath or acupuncturist. Expats will require a written recommendation from a consultation with another medical professional.
In the event of an emergency, one simple call to Expatriate Group’s assistance service provider and arrangements will be made for you to be transported to the nearest location for appropriate treatment.
Through our multilingual 24-hour support partner, we will liaise with you, your family, and the local healthcare services, keeping you continually updated.
24 hour emergency medical assistance is standard on all of our international healthcare plans.
We understand that not all medical conditions can be cured.
Chronic conditions usually require you to have regular check-ups, nursing care, and routine or daily medication. Thankfully, with the right medical support, many people can live a relatively normal life whilst suffering with a chronic condition. However, the financial implications can be devastating.
We support you by providing benefits in respect of both HIV and chronic conditions.
Premium Rewards are our way of rewarding customers who remain claim free by discounting future premiums by up to 20%. If you don’t make a claim during the policy year you can earn a discount of up to 10% on your subsequent annual premium. Two years without a claim could see a discount of up to 15% and up to 20% for 3 years without making a claim. The table below demonstrates our discount opportunities.
|Claim Free Period|
|3 Year +||-10%||-20%||-20%|
New customers claiming Premium Rewards must provide proof of the period they have been claim-free from their current insurer. The cover must be current, continuous and without any break. A comparable level of cover must be purchased from us. In the event that you do need to claim, you will lose two years of your Premium Reward entitlement, so if you’ve been claims free for three years you won’t fully lose your entitlement.
