International Health Insurance for Expats...

Cigna Global International Expat Plans for Individuals and FamiliesCigna Global Expatriate International Health Insurance QuotesAs we continue to grow as a Global Society, traveling and living outside the borders of your home country is just about as common as vacation travel. Cigna Global Expatriot health insurance was designed to cover those who do exactly that - live and work abroad. It is no secret that the quality of health care varies dramatically around the world. When you move to a new country it may be exciting but the level of care in your new country may be lacking and not to the standards of your home country. In addition as foreign nationals you more than likely will not have access nor be entitled to any subsidized healthcare. It is important to consider an expatriate health plan that will provide for your health care needs should the need arise.

Today there are several companies to consider when it comes to finding the right International policy that will fit the needs of you and your family. Cigna Global offers a unique approach to International health coverage in that they have created a modular approach to building the International Health Insurance coverage you need. Starting with the CORE insurance policy which provides protection for essential hospital stays and treatment and then tailor the rest of your plan by adding the essential components you feel are necessary.

This unique modular approach to International Health Insurance allows you to customize the plan to meet your families needs all the while keeping cost in mind. This is a bit of departure for U.S. based citizens as we are used to having a singular comprehensive plan approach to our medical insurance needs. Outside the borders of the United States health care needs can be tailored to meet family, budgetary, and be more country specific. Choosing the right plan with Cigna Global can seem a fit intimidating but that is what we are for - we are here to help!

Do I Need An Expat Policy?

This is a question that must be asked by everyone who travels outside their home country and there are certain guidelines that can help you determine if your International Health Insurance needs are Short-Term in nature or they are Long-Term. The basic rule of thumb is that if you have plans to live outside your home country for 90 days or more per year than you are probably considered an Expat in need of Long-Term coverage. Although Cigna Global does not offer a Short-Term Travel Medical policy (which are generally available up to 180 days) the baseline is 3 months abroad. So if one might be gone more than 90 days but less than 180 Cigna Global's plans might be the right choice. Short-term Travel Medical plans ARE NOT renewable but the Expat plans from Cigna Global are. Once issued you can renew them monthly for as long as the need exists.

The Cigna Individual International Health Plans...

The starting point to design your Cigna Global International Health plans is to choose from one of three distinct Core Plan Designs. Cigna Global offers three essential core Cigna Global Comparison Chart between CloseCare and Individual Plansplans - Silver, Gold and Platinum to choose from. The Cigna core policies provide coverage for inpatient, day case surgery and accommodation costs. In addition, essential cover for cancer and psychiatric care are provided for. Gold and Platinum policies also offer coverage for routine maternity.

Cigna Close Care - NEW Lower Cost Alternative

Cigna Global now offers a new product called CloseCare. The Cigna Global Close Care Plan is new plan design that provides a real pathway to keeping your International health insurance premiums down. This new plan design focuses on the Expat who plans to live outside their home country but have little plans to spend time outside either their home country or the country they are traveling to. The extreme benefit of this type of plan is that you only pay for the coverage where you need it most, in the country you will be living and when you return home for temporary visits.

Emergency Medical Evacuation

World travelers need to properly protect themselves against financial exposure due to catastrophic medical events. If comprehensive travel medical benefits and assistance services are not secured before you travel, you could find yourself exposed to huge losses - both physical and financial. Though illness can strike at any time, when severe incidents occur overseas, lack of proper coverage can leave you the traveler with steep medical bills for less than sufficient care.

As a global traveler you need to be prepared for the possibility that you could find yourself in a location where the Medical Care is poor or inaccessible. In the event you find yourself in a situation where you need to be evacuated to an area where you can receive the appropriate level of care then you need to make sure your International coverage includes a comprehensive Emergency Medical Evacuation benefit. Medical evacuations are not a simple procedures and they can be extremely complicated and expensive. This must be available to you 24/7 no matter where in the world your travels take you. In addition you need a partner who is capable of organizing and caring out the evacuation no matter where you find yourself.

Considerations for any medical evacuation are:

  1. Evaluating the appropriateness of local health care providers
  2. Identifying the closest facility where a high level of care is available
  3. Determining the risk vs rewards of moving the patient
  4. Choosing the best method of transport (ie: ambulance, helicopter, fixed wing air ambulance)
  5. Securing the cooperation of the local treating physician, including a determination that the patient is stable enough to move
  6. Enlisting the most appropriate team to handle the transport (ie: doctor, nurses, therapist)
  7. Arranging for speedy and appropriate intake at the receiving facility
  8. Having someone on your side helping guide you through the whole process - that is Cigna Global...

Make sure when you travel, you travel with a full service, travel health plan that provides a higher level of protection and peace of mind than standard evacuation memberships offer. If you are not sure about your current plan or one you are considering make sure you get a copy of your certificate of coverage and read it. Make sure you have a complete picture of what you are buying. Then cover yourself with any one of the Cigna Global plans by simply adding the Medical Evacuation Benefit to your Core Module.

The Affordable Care Act and U.S. Citizens Living Abroad

Moving abroad is an exciting time for most people. There is plenty to do prior to departure. For American Citizens it is important that they understand what responsibilities they will have to meet should they move broad with regards to the Affordable Care Act. Most Americans today know that they are compelled to purchase what we now refer to ACA Compliant heath insurance so that they are not required to pay the Shared Responsibility Payment (IRS Penalty) for not having "Minimum Essential Coverage"

U.S. citizens living abroad are subject to the individual shared responsibility provision. However, U.S. citizens who are not physically present in the United States for at least 330 full days within a 12-month period are treated as having minimum essential coverage for that 12-month period regardless of whether they enroll in any health care coverage. This is known as the Physical Presence Test.

In addition, U.S. citizens who are bona fide residents of a foreign country (or countries) for an entire taxable year are treated as having minimum essential coverage for that year. In general, these individuals qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion under section 911.

Individuals may qualify for this rule even if they cannot use the section 911 exclusion for all of their foreign earned income because, for example, they are employees of the United States. Individuals that qualify for this rule need take no further action to comply with the individual shared responsibility provision during the months when they qualify. They will report their status with their federal income tax return on Form 8965

U.S. Citizens who do not meet the physical presence or residency requirements must have minimum essential coverage (an ACA Compliant health plan), qualify for a coverage exemption, or make an individual shared responsibility payment when they file their federal income tax returns. Note that minimum essential coverage includes a group health plan provided by an overseas employer.

This is a complicated subject so we are providing a link to the IRS Publication 5187 as one reference source for you to have. Simply click on the brochure image above to view the IRS Publication. We suggest that you consult with your CPA or Tax Professional to help you better understand your responsibilities prior to moving abroad.
