Cigna Global Long Term International Health Insurance in Brazil

brazil travel insuranceCigna Global International Health insurance for families, employees and students living in Brazil or for that matter anywhere in the world have many choices for international health insurance while living away from their home country.

How much annual coverage, unlimited?  Does the company provide coverage for acts of war or terrorism?  Are there any age limitations? What if you are taking several prescriptions, which company provides the best coverage and most flexibility for your needs and location?


Have you decided to retire and live in Brazil, maybe you have a three-year work assignment, or you are attending one of the many Universities and have decided to study abroad.  For any and all reasons you are living in Brazil, you will need either a Long-Term or Short-Term International Health insurance policy you can take with you.

Cigna Global International Health Insurance plans for expatriates in Brazil are comprehensive, worldwide medical coverage which can be customized to meet your budget and lifestyle needs. Short-Term (a few days up to 6 month) and Long-Term plans (6 months up to permanent plans).

Why is insurance so critical for international travel?  Obtaining healthcare in some parts of the world can be tricky. Some hospitals won’t provide any treatment–or won’t allow a patient to be discharged–until the hospital has received a guarantee of payment. Such guarantees are commonly provided by travel insurers, in conjunction with assistance providers, but rarely by other insurers or managed care plans.

This means you’ll have to pay in advance, perhaps as much as tens of thousands of dollars, with your credit card. Of course, for this to work the hospital must accept foreign credit cards and your card must have a sufficient credit limit.

Emergency Evacuation services and International Health Insurance companies provide 24 hour, 7 days a week access.  No matter where you are in the world, and in need of emergency or non emergency care, you will have the quality care you deserve from medical professionals you expect.

Don’t rely on your domestic health insurance to properly cover you while away from your home country.  Cigna Global travels with you wherever you may visit or live.  Long or short-term, Cigna Global Silver, Gold, Platinum and the new “Close Care Plan” provides the coverage, access to the doctor of your choice, and a team of professionals available to help you 24/7, whatever the situation, basic or dire.

Global families, an employee working as an independent contractor on a long term work assignment, or a student attending a school and living in Brazil.  Cigna Global provides the choice and flexibility and also allows you to see any doctor or hospital of your choice.
