Expatriates worldwide – An overview

An expatriate is broadly defined as a person who lives outside his or her native country. In 2015, it is estimated that there are over 230 million expatriates worldwide. This number has grown from barely 70 million in the last 50 years. Today Expatriates make up about 3% of the global population, and if there were an independant country, they would be the fifth most populous nation.

International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI)

We offer several International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI) plans offered by different reputed US based providers. These international medical insurance plans are popularly known as Global medical insurance or Expatriate insurance and they provide long term cover to people working or living outside their home country, usually for one year or more. These plans are ideal for expatriates and their families, individuals with dual residences and multinational employers. Since these International medical insurance plans are designed to provide long-term, worldwide medical cover, it allows customers to receive and continue treatment anywhere in the world that they choose.

What is Expat health insurance?

Persons living outside their country of citizenship (expatriates) may not qualify for medical insurance from their adopted country or they may want to have insurance that can work for them wherever they are so they have the option of visiting home from time to time without purchasing additional medical insurance. In that case, international health insurance may be just the right option! You can purchase the insurance to begin from the day you leave your home country or after you have already arrived in your adopted country. The insurance must go through the company's underwriting process, so you may have to submit medical information (the process may be easier if you have some access to these medical records). A great advantage to these plans is that once you are accepted on the plan, you are guaranteed the policy year after year. The price will increase with age, not based on any medical conditions you may develop along the way and you cannot be removed from the policy. There are great options available whatever your adopted country may be! Feel free to check out prices and options at American Visitor Insurance as we are dedicated to getting you the best option for the best price!
