My current health insurance is only supposed to cover me for a maxiumum 30
day trip outside of the US. I've been skirting that and luckily haven't
had to file any claims. This next year I expect to be gone for 11 months
as I'm headed to the South Pacific, and I need to do this right. I've been
looking at various true international policies and was wondering if anyone
has any feedback on either of these policies.
The two plans that I like the best are the "International Citizen
Platinum" which is underwritten by Lloyds of London and "Global Medical
Insurance" underwritten by International Medical Group (IMG). Both plans
are very similiar on paper, but I have no idea how they are to work with.
If anyone has any feedback, I'd be very interested in hearing it.
As an aside, I've also looked at "Reside Prime", "Worldwide Navigator" and
"Lifeboat" which are underwritten by Speciality Risk International (SRI)
and decided against them due to the requirements of using their provider
network when in the US.
