Expats, due to their particular situation, have unique health and insurance concerns.

Typically, they cannot not be covered under their company’s health or medical scheme. They and their families will require an international health plan.

Quality and reliability of health plan providers differs hugely, cultural sensitivity can be very important as well.

Expat policies should always be tailored to cover actual needs; their territory can be worldwide or regional. Coverage is typically medical, usually including evacuation services and/or repatriation benefits. 

Components of travel insurance may also be included here. Good plans will typically include direct access to predefined hospitals and other healthcare providers and will pay these directly.
