GeoBlue Expatriate International Health Insurance

GeoBlue Expatriate International Health Insurance plans in 2019 go with you wherever you go worldwide.  Domestic health insurance and Medicare, tends to shrink and disappear when borders are crossed.

When traveling or living abroad, there are typically two options:

  1. Short-term plans typically provide coverage for a few days up to 6 months.
  2. Long-term plans are 6 months to permanent.

  • Global specialty health services, technology and insurance provider.
  • The International solution for the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Companies – pairing the leading domestic brand with the leading international brand.
  • Leader in helping international employees, students and travelers to identify, access, and pay for quality health care anywhere in the world.

Long-Term Plans are for:

  • US employees and contractors on foreign work assignment.
  • Global families living part or full time abroad.
  • International Students living and studying in a foreign country.

All three types of plans offer you freedom to visit a doctor or medical facility of your choice without a referral, anywhere in the world.  Coverage levels and payment responsibilities vary among the three plan you are enrolled in.

Are you being hired as an “independent contractor” on assignment outside of your employers typical working locations?  Your employment status and location doesn’t fit in the usual employment benefits case … Are you contracted through a company subsidiary and not offered employee benefits because of logistics?

Do you need US coverage included with your International medical plan, or will you only need coverage outside the U.S.?  These are all questions which need to be answered.
