International Healthcare News: Expats advised to talk

Your global health insurance plan might already be sorted, but before and during a move abroad expatriates have been advised to talk to their families.

Marcia De Wolf, author of a book on getting the most from expat assignments, told the Daily Telegraph that keeping the lines of communication open between yourself, your spouse and your children is important when moving overseas.

Indeed, it is "better to involve children as soon as possible in the decision-making process" and even allowing them to hear arguments about the move might help.

Healthcare is something to consider when relocating abroad but Ms De Wolf advised people to make the effort to thoroughly research and prepare every aspect of the transition.

However, she did note that the move will not be easy. But it is "much better to prepare to deal with these problems rather than hoping your family will be an exception".
