Manage your costs by adding an excess

We offer plenty of excess options if you want to lower your monthly cost – from €125 to €2,550. 

If you choose our Standard cover level without an out-patient upgrade, you have two higher options (€6,375 and €12,750) to bring costs down even further.

Short term cover

Need cover for 3 to 11 months?

If you’re living or working internationally for less than a year, take a look at our short term International Health Plan. It gives you all the benefits of our Standard cover level, but for a shorter time. So whether you’re only away for a few months, still weighing up your options or you want cover while you apply for your local state healthcare system, our short term plan could be ideal.

Online doctor consultation and prescription service

Need to talk to a doctor but don’t speak the local language? Or just struggling to find time for that appointment in your busy schedule? When you live or work abroad, accessing healthcare isn’t always easy.  But with our new online doctor service, now available as part of our international health plans, you can speak to an experienced, internationally qualified doctor - at a time and place that suits you.

Leaving a company scheme?

If you’re moving on and leaving your company healthcare scheme, we can continue your international health insurance as a personal customer without a break. That often means you can continue to have cover for existing medical conditions that were covered on your company scheme, which a new insurer might exclude.
