Expat insurance: what is it for?

  • Because when our son came down with acute appendicitis in Chicago, it didn't take us long to find out how much it costs for treatment in the US... Without our expat insurance, we would have struggled to pay the €20,000 bill!

  • Because when I went to work in Canada for 2 years, I wanted an insurance plan from the 1st euro to give us good coverage of routine healthcare. What with the pediatrician, the dentist and the optician, being an expat family in Canada can be an expensive business!

  • Because in the UK, I realised that to get an urgent appointment with a specialist I had to go private. And it's expensive!

  • Because I was involved in a serious car accident in Mexico. I never thought that one day I'd need repatriation assistance!

  • Because in Brazil, the quality of the public health services can vary. We want easy access to private healthcare without it impacting too much on our budget.

  • Because during my secondment in Italy, I'll be covered by French Social Security. What I need is international top-up cover.
