The benefits of an international medical insurance
Depending on the country you are going to live in, there is sometimes the possibility of having a local health cover in place; however most expats do prefer international medical insurance for the following reasons:
Covered at Home
Depending on your area of cover, your home country will be covered as well
Freedom of Choice
You are not restricted to a network of health care providers
Avoid Waiting Lists
Much shorter waiting lists in the private sector
Sometimes discounts are applied for families.
Examples of costs
Single person going to Brazil
Couple going to Singapore
Family going to the UK

Why choose Expat Assure?
The 'best expat insurance’ for everyone does not exist, as everyone has different needs and expectations. However, the best expat insurance for you is out there: it consists of a tailored insurance, offering the best compromise between the legislation of the country to which you are being expatriated, your medical profile and your requirements. The consultants at Expat Assure will help you to identify the insurance policy best adapted to your needs.
Expat Assure is not owned by any of the insurance companies. Our consultants are not paid on a commission basis but have a fixed salary. The advice that we offer is therefore independent and entirely based on your needs.
Our Service is Free of Charge
Whether you contact the insurance company directly, or whether you go through us, the price of your policy will be exactly the same. As we are paid a commission by the insurance companies (the amount of which we are happy to divulge on request), the added-value and the independent advice that we offer will not come at any additional cost to you.
Wide Variety of Choice
Thanks to our presence in the UK and France via Expat Assure France, we are in a unique position to offer you the best international health insurance, life insurance and income protection solutions from different countries. Therefore, we offer a wider choice of solutions that many other brokers only offer in their own country.
The work at Expat Assure does not stop once you have taken out a policy. We are at your disposal throughout the duration of the policy. Every year, if you would like, we can discuss your policy in order to check that you are still happy and that you have the insurance most suited to your needs. Moreover, Expat Assure is able to act as a mediator between you and the insurance company if ever you experience a problem in the handling of your insurance policy.
