Cigna Global SafeTravel Smartphone App
Few people who plan to travel abroad spend much time thinking or worrying about getting sick or injured while away. Most are simply excited to get started on their new global journey and see what experiences await them. If you are planning a longer travel event such as living abroad for a period of time that exceeds 6 months then you need to consider procuring a comprehensive International Medical plan specifically designed for expats.
Cigna Global has been around a very long time and they have provided global cover to expats literally around the world for more than 30 years. No one wants to think about getting sick and certainly not injured while living abroad. But the reality is that this is a very real possibility. In addition many countries around the globe will require some proof of International Cover, although minimal, before they will issue a visa to you. Truthfully most people live as an expat and enjoy a healthy experience. But there are also those who experience one or more medical emergencies, by no fault of their own and if this happens just having an International health plan that looked good on paper is not enough.
In the event of a medical emergency where do you go for care? How do you get to your destination? Who is in your corner to serve as an advocate for your care? What language barriers might you face? And even worse - who and how is your medical care going to be paid for? These are all questions that people who have faced a medical emergency while abroad most certainly faced.
