The best expat health insurance companies

Every country has different rules around health care, with some countries requiring health insurance to be in place before you arrive. Getting healthcare can also be incredibly expensive, especially in an emergency when you are also likely to be under extreme levels of stress potentially in a language which you are unfamiliar with.

It's therefore essentially to ensure your health insurance is in place before you travel and also be fully aware what you are covered for. It's unlikely that any health insurance you have in place in your home country is going to provide you with the necessary cover.
