Using Health Insurance Overseas
This depends on the level of cover under your private medical insurance policy. Some comprehensive health insurance policies will provide limited cover if you are overseas but this may be restricted to emergency treatment only.
If you are planning to travel overseas on a regular basis or you will be spending extended periods abroad you may want to consider an international health insurance plan. While your travel insurance may again provide limited emergency medical cover, an international PMI policy may give you the peace of mind that any medical treatment will be covered – wherever in the world you are.
Many countries around the world don’t offer universal healthcare like the NHS. So, depending on where you’re travelling to, ensuring that you have adequate private medical insurance may be crucial in ensuring you receive quick and comprehensive treatment.
