Don’t be stranded by your current health insurance company, enroll today in a GeoBlue Worldwide Medical plan.  Global coverage you can count on wherever you may be.

Your Domestic Insurance Cannot or Will Not do any of this:

For Example:  If you become ill or are injured because of a fall or car accident while abroad, will you be able to get in contact with your domestic carrier?  In the rare case you do; will they tell you where the nearest modern or westernized medical facility or hospital is in; Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, Brazil or any other part of the world?

If the nearest medical facility is unacceptable will they air evac you to an appropriate medical facility.  Can they coordinate care, use translators or approve a surgery on your behalf?

The answer to all of these questions is; NO they can’t, and NO they won’t.  You need them late at night or on the weekend, maybe it’s an extended holiday?  Will they even except your call … What now?

Health insurance companies are simply not equipped to handle any type of international situation.  On the other hand, International Medical insurance companies like GeoBlue, specialize in this global market.

Claims, member services, translators, working directly with doctors, hospitals and pharmacies, contacting and coordinating emergency evacuations.  Helping you when you need medical attention wherever you are around the globe.

Employer Third Country National International Health Insurance

GeoBlue International Travel Health InsuranceInternational Health Insurance for A Third Country National (TCN) who is a person who is employed by a multinational organization who comes from neither the country where the organization has it headquarters, nor from the country where the employee is working.

Most third country national need a comprehensive International Medical plan but do not need access to the U.S. health care system which drives up premiums.  Many third country nationals dependents are not residing in the U.S. so do not need plans which are HIPAA or Erisa compliant.

U.S. employees on foreign assignment or Expatriates may need access to U.S. doctors and hospitals which can be part of their International health insurance plan options.  Some international health insurance companies will offer a choice whether the member wishes to include U.S. coverage or only international coverage on the policy.  U.S. residents who live abroad and choose to move back to the U.S. can enroll in an “individual” health insurance policy when they return to the states, but may have a small waiting period.  Employees who move back may also have options to enroll in their employer plan.

Third Country Nationals may also fall into a situation where they are not entitled to an employer health insurance plan, because of their location, or their employment status, such as; an independent contractor, or a certain visa type.  In this case the individual or family can always apply for an “individual” international health insurance plan, which they can take with them wherever they are worldwide.

In order to qualify for a TCN visa, the TCN must prove that they did not violate or overstay the period of their authorized period of admission, as indicated on their Form I-94.  If they did, they are not eligible for the Third Country National processing and must  apply in their home country.  Third Country National processing is also off limits to citizens of the three countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism: Iran, Sudan and Syria.

Also available are International Medical insurance plans for “Host Country Nationals.”  Who are employees who are hired in their own country by international companies from outside their home country.

International Health Insurance coverage options for Third Country Nationals includes coverage for; U.S. inbound and outbound coverage.  Short and long-term, along with coverage options which includes access to U.S. doctors and hospitals or only international coverage without U.S. coverage.
