Global Expatriate Insurance Information
Unexpected medical treatment is the single most expensive hidden cost you could get hit while living abroad. But there is no need to worry, just be sure to stay covered with a proper Global Expatriate Hospital and Medical Insurance plan.
If you have an unexpected illness or accidental injury while living abroad, you should make sure an insurance company is there to ensure you get the care you need.
Health care costs are very expensive. Hospitals can charge thousands of dollars per day. Without hospital and medical insurance, you and your family would be responsible for these high costs, which can create a severe financial burden. Health insurance is intended to cover unexpected and unforeseeable circumstances.
Who is eligible for this coverage?
Coverage is available for 15 days or more to persons who are not eligible for benefits under a Canadian government health insurance plan. Such persons must be either:
- a Canadian citizen residing outside of Canada, or
- a Canadian citizen returning to reside in Canada and awaiting coverage under a government health insurance plan, or
- a non-Canadian citizen residing in Canada and requiring coverage in Canada, or
- a non-Canadian citizen residing outside of his/her country of citizenship while employed by a Canadian company and requiring coverage in the country of residence.
